Geevestone RSL Tasmania bar

Geeveston RSL – $10pn – Tasmania

Geeveston RSL is 60km south of Hobart and boast a couple of great camps. We chose the RSL as reviews said how nice the hosts were. They were right.

Geeveston RSL Camp

The camp is a large well maintained grass area by the RSL. Some spots are by the river where you might spot a platypus, others are under trees for some shade. The area is big enough for any size rig and as long as your self-contained you are welcome.

Head in to the RSL after 2pm to pay. At the moment it’s $10 per night or stay 4 pay 3. Once you pay you get the code for the toilets. Water is available.

Geeveston RSL

We paid for three nights and had a drink at the bar. Returning another night for dinner, I can recommend the Salmon.. yummy! They serve meals Thurs to Sun, 4 till 8pm. After a couple of drinks and a laugh with the locals and staff we headed back to our van, only a few steps away.

We had a fire pit one night as the weather had cooled and it was ok to have one. You can buy a wheel barrow of firewood and loan a fire pot here which is great value at $10

Have A Drive

Geeveston Town Centre

Only a minute’s drive or a few minutes walk away from Geeveston RSL is the lovely little town. With life size wood carvings, cafes and an amazing Information centre. The Information centre has a guy carving wood or is that turning wood? you can watch him through a glass window. The centre not only has all the usual but also has wood sculptures and antique wood turning equipment.

Drive To The End Of The Road

The last road at the bottom of the South East ends at a car park. From here you can do a short walk to the South Right Whale Sculpture or do a five hour return walk to the South Cape Lookout. This lookout is possibly the closest you will get to the Antarctic from Tasmania.

Willie Smiths Apple Shed

Wow! I thought this was going to be an old shed that sold apples haha… the jokes on me. Don’t get me wrong, it looks like a big old shed on the outside. But the inside is… cool, warm, inviting, busy, quirky, tasty. Walking in you see the bar, then the cafe part, then the distillery. We had apple pie. When in Rome and all that, or is that Tassie 😉 As you sit having lunch or a taster paddle of cider you spot all the cool old antiques around the place.

Franklin/Dover/ Margate

A few of the the places by the water to see and do boating or just take in the views.

Arve Falls Walk

This is an easy walk and a nice waterfall. Make sure you pack an extra layer of clothing though 😀

Geevestone RSL is in a great location to see all the South east coast has to offer. As you can stay a total of two weeks at a low cost it’s worth stopping.
