Situated in a private water front environment on the shores of Norfolk Bay in Koonya on the Tasman Peninsula. “Cascades” is a prime location from which to explore the rich convict history of Port Arthur and the Saltwater River Coal Mines Historic Site, the natural beauty of the Tasman National Park, as well as many other attractions the Tasman Peninsula has to offer.
Cascades Colonial Accommodation, has been transformed from a convict goal housing
up to 400 convicts into an amazing accommodation experience. Stay in authentic
convict built cottages constructed of brick and sandstone, complimented
by colonial antiques and furniture skillfully handcrafted from selected
timbers off the property. These cottages are all self contained and fitted
with modern amenities.
Now run by fifth generation owners Marcus Clark and Maria Stupka, guests are invited to visit the private family museum and to explore convict remains, including a cellblock with an intact solitary confinement and the original mess hall. Enjoy two stunning short walks on the property, one that follows the waterfront to the site of a convict jetty and another that goes into the rainforest to the ruins of a convict mill and quarry site.
