Ramada Seven Mile Beach in Hobart Now Offers Guests a Farm Stay Experience

HOBART, TASMANIA (June 19, 2020) – Beachside resort, Ramada Seven Mile Beach in Hobart now has a hobby farm. The 22 hectare property is home to two alpacas, a mother cow and her calf and a brood of chickens. Goats and kids (the baby goat kind) will be arriving in mid-July.

The resort is part of the Club Wyndham South Pacific collection, a timeshare vacation club with close to 60,000 members.

“Emerging from COVID-19 lockdowns, more and more travellers are craving outdoor experiences, and we are thrilled to be able to give our timeshare club members and guests this added dimension to their Tassie holidays,” said Warren Cullum, Vice President Resort Operations, Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific.

Resort Manager, Emma Todd and her team have given new life to the coastal resort to create a welcoming community space. The property has an idyllic feel to it: native hens, echidnas and wallabies graze happily throughout the expansive grounds as holidaymakers are encouraged to roam freely around the lush green property. The hobby farm animals are kept in a spacious and pretty paddocked area, while the chickens are free to range by day and retreat to a henhouse at night.

“There are daily feeding and petting times, and for a truly unique resort experience, children are encouraged to collect eggs of a morning to cook up with their parents back at their villas,” said Emma Todd.

Construction is also commencing on a fire pit to encourage club members to enjoy starlit nights of country style damper, billy tea, and toasted marshmallows.

The resort is just steps from the peaceful shores of Seven Mile Beach and offers a tranquil rural setting just 20 minutes’ drive from the Hobart CBD. There is a children’s playground, tennis courts and a heated swimming pool and spa.
