We are very centrally located to visit the Nation Parks, with Mt. William, Ben Lomond Douglas Apsley and Freycinet all within an hours drive of Scamander.
Our beaches are deserted and run for miles in either direction, and a safe to walk swim fish and surf, you can just laze around and count the Pelicans or watch for dolphins and whales swimming up and down the coast. The sands in front of our complex abound with sea birds, as well as the Pelicans which gave us our name.
The hosts Jane & Vic are friendly and very easy going, love to chat and can help with detailed information on the area and the Island as a whole.
