Living up to its name with glorious views overlooking the Inglis River, the Waterfront Wynyard is a wonderfully retro mid-century motel with budget-friendly rooms that run from classic to classy – along with a guest lounge complete with roaring open fire for those chilly days and a BBQ so you can cook yourself up a feast if you don’t feel like eating out. The best bit? The Waterfront Wynyard is also fur-fam friendly, so you don’t have to worry about leaving your best friend at home.

There’s also a popular little cafe opposite where you can grab a coffee before heading across the street to the beach and joining the walking track that meanders all the way into town.

Just 20 minutes from Wynyard, IKON in Burnie offers contemporary four-star accommodation in – yup, you guessed it – an iconic heritage-listed building. Dating back over 100 years, the historic exterior features classic wrought-iron balconies and a gorgeous turreted tower – while the interior has fancy Italian furniture, comfortable king beds and spa baths. It’s also within walking distance of many of Burnie’s best sights – like the famous fairy penguins – and restaurants and cafes.

The Duck House, for acute attention to detail

There’s a reason this two-bedroom holiday cottage in Burnie has won multiple awards and, believe it or not, it goes beyond the retro duck theme and quirky furniture – although these undoubtedly give this whimsical wonderland some extra pizzazz. It’s in everything else, too – from the friendly and attentive staff to the touches of luxury, like the claw-foot bathtub, the fluffy towels, the sunny cottage garden and cosy sitting room.

Boat Harbour Garden Cottages, for a retreat to nature’s finest
