Located opposite to one of most popular attraction in Launceston - Tamar Island Wetlands Centre, our Spa Retreat is positioned to take in the most spectacular views of River Tamar and its islands, the valley with Mt Ben Lomond at the back drop. Only 12 mins away from Launceston CBD, yet it feels like a world on its own.
Built in 1980’s by the original owner/master builder from 53,000 hand-polished recycled bricks, antique doors and fittings with Tasmanian Blackwood timbers throughout, recent renovations have resulted in a superb blend of Tasmanian heritage and modern comforts. We are fortunate to call it home since the beginning of 2021, and filled this place to the brim with curated collections, cozy textures and objects of delight!
The property has three acres of seamlessly blend of colorful gardens and native bushland with abundant birdlife & native animals.The new-built outdoor spa with sunken lounge area, fire pit and ambient lighting throughout the deck and rock garden, boasting magical panoramic views of the valley and a fairyland of distant lights from township at night.

There are two cats with tons of personality on the premise. The British Blue is Pinot - the official guest greeter, doubling up as part-time entertainer, this quirky sticky-beak can get snappy but mostly harmless. The white Ragdoll is Baijiu (Chinese white spirit), is the most gentle cat albeit a tad aloof, Most guests find their company therapeutic. However, we will keep them away from guests not that way inclined.
Danbury Residence is where you can truly call home while exploring Northern Tasmania. While we highly respect guests’ privacy and exclusiveness in their area, we welcome interaction and encourage our guests to take advantage of all amenities available at the entire property.
