Fickle Break Farm is a 28-acre coastal property on the doorstep of a world-class surf break, only 30 mins from Hobart. You can walk out the door with your surfboard, bike, or running shoes and jump in the ocean or onto several beautiful coastal walking and riding trails. We are 10 minutes away from Lauderdale shops and 10 mins to the best surf beaches in Hobart on the South Arm Peninsula. Pitch your tent or park your set up on our beautiful grassy hilltop campsite overlooking the South Arm Peninsula and Mt Wellington in the distance. You'll enjoy good access to Mays Point surf break and the Clarence Coastal Trail just a few mins away with walking tracks to Cremorne and Lauderdale along the coast. The camping area has a communal fire pit, access to fresh water and power in our large shed if needed, and a table tennis table. We are on tank water, so please be mindful of this. And please drive slowly and be mindful of treading lightly on the land. We also offer a 5m lotus belle stargazer tent, situated at the very top of the property, nestled amongst the native trees and with water views, it has a luxurious queen-sized bed with beautiful linens and is a short walk away from the walking tracks to the beach. All guests have access to our well-maintained composting toilet with water views and a beautiful hot outdoor shower that is open to the sky. Next door is a large sheep property, and on our land we have friendly chooks, peacocks, Guinea pigs, miniature goats, horses and a border collie. Guests and children are welcome to pat, feed and cuddle the chooks, Guinea pigs, horses and the miniature goats! Dogs are welcome as long as they are friendly with other dogs and people, and can be trusted not to escape to the next-door sheep property (beware as farmers can be ruthless with dogs!). They will need to be supervised and restrained (tied up or placed in our closed-in yard at night so they don’t disturb wallabies and other wildlife). We love meeting new people and are passionate about our beautiful property so we can’t wait to share it with you!

Julie’s farm was an awesome camping spot for our tents. The compostable toilet is a great addition to the site and very easy to use. The chance to cuddle with mini goats and chickens added a delightful charm to our camping adventure. :) Highly recommend for a memorable and eco-friendly getaway!

We loved staying here. Amazing property in a great location. We loved seeing the farm animals and walking down to the nearby beach for a swim. Had everything we needed. Would highly recommend.

It’s ok, the play equipment for the kids is a great idea. Nice to have the hot shower & toilet however the shower wasn’t draining and it had about 2 inches of dirty cloudy water so we stood on bricks to stay above it, also no door is a little sketchy. The sites should be a bit clearer, yes we arrived early and it was packed with tents which didn’t leave until after 2pm so we parked on the slab which was right next to the tap, that meant people constantly walking through our camp (not around) to wash dishes. It wasn’t the best vibe.. we didn’t see the owners and any point, nor did another family whom arrived after us.

Lovely country farm stay but needs a bit of TLC, composting toilet had no paper or enzymes, no sauna as advertised, communal shed was in pretty average condition, walk to beach is 1km on a goat track down/up hill, sunrise and sunsets were beautiful, amazing views from the hill, being able to have a fire was cool, somewhat overpriced for what it offers.

So good
Fickle Farm was a great location close to Hobart for day trips and so close to great surf . The loo with a view and the hot shower was fantastic. The fire pits and kids play equipment really had it all . The hosts were super friendly up for a chat . Absolutely recommend
