Soak up the exquisite panorama and serenity. Experience a special, secluded picnic on a Rathmore hilltop on sunset, around a campfire or by the fireplace. You may choose to enjoy a Tasmanian sparkling or still wine with our “country canapes” or local cheeses and charcuterie…..what joy and bliss!
“Highlight was the platypus in the Dew Rivulet”.
While visiting Rathmore you are likely to spy our 6 local wild platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) in the Dew Rivulet, especially from the Platypus Punt. A Platypus is this planet’s most unusual creature. Scientists first thought it to be a hoax with its bill and webbed feet like a duck, tail like a beaver and furry body like an otter. The platypus is a semi-aquatic mammal that lays eggs and is endemic to eastern Australia.
