Hobart is Tasmania’s most popular destination for visitors – and for good reason!
It is often the bright lights and cultural sights of Hobart that first catch the eye, but what a lot of first time visitors don’t realise is how close Hobart is to the iconic Huon Valley and scenic Bruny Island.
The quiet, coastal community of Margate is ideally located – close enough to Hobart to easily access its best attractions like MONA or Salamanca Markets, while also on the doorstep of some of Tasmania’s most beautiful land and seascapes.
It is such a unique place to base yourself, and the best place to stay is the lovely Waterview Gardens Bed and Breakfast!
Guests regularly comment on the delicious breakfast that is included in your room rate and prepared with a whole lot of love by your delightful host Leonie.
Home made panna cotta and yoghurt often make an appearance and freshly baked bread is available on request. I can’t think of a better way to start your day of exploration down the d’Entrecasteaux Channel!
There are three gorgeously appointed rooms – Baudin, Hayes, and Bruni – all named after French explorers who were some of the earliest Europeans to set eyes on this beautiful part of Tasmania. The views from your private first-floor deck are perfect for sunset drinks, and you too can play the role of explorer as you wander the sprawling 6+ acres of glorious garden while soaking up the sweeping views of Bruny Island, just a short hop across the water.

Waterview Gardens B&B is what I like to call a ‘day tripper’s delight’!
The ferry to Bruny Island leaves from Kettering, barely 15 minute’s drive away, where you can easily spend an entire day tasting, driving and walking your way around this popular Tasmanian ‘island off an island off an island’. Its location on the southern side of Hobart also means that, unlike most other inner city B&Bs, you don’t have to contend with peak hour traffic.
Go for a loop drive around the peninsula to the south and you will find the laid-back vibe of pretty Woodbridge, ewe-nique cheese and spirits of Birchs Bay, and the famous ciders and weekend markets of folksy Cygnet.
Got even more time on your hands? Keep heading south to Southport, Hastings Caves, and Cockle Creek – as far south as it is possible to drive anywhere in Australia!
Waterview Gardens B&B is an absolute gem of a place to escape, recharge and relax. Or as Leonie likes to call it, “Your home away from home”
