Magnificent Tasmanian Wedge-tailed eagles nest nearby and are frequently observed around Cygnet . They are bigger and darker than their mainland relatives. Yearly the smaller male is seen hunting alone, then the pair can be seen "training" a juvenile who stays till the next breeding season approaches.
The Tasmanian Wedge Tail is an endemic sub-species and is included in the Federal list as an endangered subspecies. There are only ~ 400 recorded nesting sites in Tasmania. They predate on rabbits, wallaby and sick lambs. Scavenging on roadkill helps the population but cars, wind turbines and vandals place them at risk.
Our Proteas plantation is fully enclosed and is a great walk for guests and pets.
"Seven Inch Beach" is only a short walk from the accommodation for a swim in the Huon River.
The Cottage Gardens, outdoor areas pastures and olive groves are yours to explore.
