Gretna Hotel, Tasmania

Beautiful inside is the Gretna Hotel established about 1862 very homely with the publican being very helpful.
There is a paddock to the right and to the back of the hotel which the Publican offers for Caravaner's and RV's to park for a night or two.
Meals are offered at the hotel Friday and Saturday nights, but we were there on the Sunday night in March.  Visited Hobart for one night to attend an family picnic then moved on through New Norfolk to Gretna for the night.



The sunset from the paddock




The sheep were our neighbours.


The map show that we are heading west after coming down the east coast of Tasmania.

  2. 1862 in Australia or Canada is an old building. In Europe it is barely an infant!

    Me han llamado especial atención, los maravillosos tonos de la puesta de sol.

  4. The hotel is so Tasmanian. I doubt you would see a similar looking building anywhere in Australia.

  5. The hotel and the sunset are both lovely. And I suspect Andrew is right about the hotel.

    1. It was friendly when I walked in the door to see the publican about stopping in the paddock, he was ever so friendly and very helpful. Inside the pub of what I saw was lovely.

  10. The sunset is beautiful, lovely photographs.
    I always enjoy seeing sheep in nearby fields, especially in Spring-time with their lambs.

    All the best Jan
