Stunning, 100 acres where Highland Cows and hand-raised animals roam free amongst all the abundant native wildlife. Immerse yourself in a beautiful natural environment and lovely friendly animals for a unique experience of being involved in helping Ian and Wally look after all the lucky rescue animals at Eventide. All hosted by the down to earth, local owner Ian and his loyal dog, Wally. You are welcome to help feed the baby calves their morning milk, collect the eggs and tidy the chicken coops or just relax and watch all the lucky animals live their best lives on Eventide Sanctuary! 🤠🐮🐑🐄😊

Must come here!
I highly recommend that anyone who visits Tasmania, must make it a priority to stay at Eventide Sanctuary! Not only is Ian an amazing host who took the time to make us feel so welcome, he takes amazing care of his animals and deserves everyone’s support so he can continue to make his place the best farm stay experience for everyone! Ian took us on a walk around his property where we found his infamous highland cows and fed them, threw bread to the sheep and chickens and even watched him feed his adorable calves. Our highlight was also meeting his dog Walley, where he took it upon himself to keep watch of the farm from our footstool!

We loved camping at Eventide Sanctuary with all the farm animals. Ian (and Wally 🐶) as hosts are wonderful, so genuine in his cause to rescue animals and protect them. We can’t wait to come back.

There are many very cute animals here, and they are very willing to get close to humans. It was a very good experience. If there is a chance, I would like to camp here again.

We Love Eventide!!
Eventide Sanctuary is a fantastic spot to camp, just a short drive from Hobart. Camping in the fields with the animals is a fantastic experience for kids, big and small! We especially loved Eddie and donkey and the highland cows! Ian is doing great work, and we highly recommend a stay (or even a farm tour if you can't camp self-sufficently) to support the sanctuary to continue to care for the manangarie.

If you’re looking for a fabulous farm stay experience on a large property, close to beaches, wineries and day trips to Tassies top tourist attractions with the added bonus of a legend camp host then Eventide sanctuary is definitely for you. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Positioned perfectly to watch the full moon rise after setting up in the afternoon sun and woke to a beautiful sunrise. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks Ian and the farm crew for a wonderful camp experience.
