The Cradle Coast Region of North West Tasmania is a large and expansive area covering 22,492 square kms or 33.1% of the total area of Tasmania.
It is renowned for its unique and diverse environment including rugged mountains, extensive forests, rich agricultural farmland, old mining towns, and wonderful natural coastal scenery. The mainstays of the economy are agriculture, forestry, mining, manufacturing, and of course, the ever growing tourist sector.
Glencoe Country B&B’s location is ideally situated in the Lakes District, renowned for its pristine wilderness, rugged mountains, and spectacular landscapes. Adjacent to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, which includes Cradle Mountain, Lake St Clair, the Franklin and Gordon Rivers, We are within an easy drive of major airports, the Spirit of Tasmania ferry service, and the major urban centres sprawled along the coastal strip.
With Tasmania’s island location in the middle latitudes, the Cradle Coast region enjoys, for the most part, a comfortable temperate maritime climate. The westerly airstream and mountainous landscape lead to a marked variation of cloudiness, rainfall and temperature in the local area, so if you venture out be prepared with clothing to suit all types of weather!
Locals simply love living here with beautiful warm summer days, and mild, yet not excessively cold winters…
