Driving Instructions

How to find us at “Hide-away Cottage Retreat” 500 Ridgley Highway, Burnie, Tasmania Phone: 03 6435 7330.

We are located in the rolling hills, approx. 6km South of the Port of Burnie on the Ridgley Highway B18. About a five or six minute drive from Burnie.

If you are using a GPS system please enter your destination as 500 Ridgley Highway Mooreville.

We are about a 2 hour drive from Launceston airport and about 35 minutes from Devonport. Assuming you will be coming from that direction, take the Bass Highway to Burnie. As you approach the Burnie city area, stay in the left hand lane, you will see over hanging signs, the one you want is the sign for Ridgley (Cradle Mt) (Strahan) on the B18, this is a LEFT hand turn. Follow the B18 towards Ridgley.

(Coming down the Bass Highway from the Stanley area, look for the same sign just under the bridge when entering Burnie, and turn to your right.)

300 m before you get here you’ll see a road sign on the left hand side of the road, you are close now, turn on your right indicator and start to slow down.

We are at the very crest of the slight rise ahead of the sign and there you’ll see a blue Tourism sign “Hide-away Cottage Retreat” pointing to our entry on the RH side. There is a slip lane on your left, so it is safe to pull into the centre to turn.

If you are coming from the Ridgley area along the Ridgley Highway, still look for a road sign on the LH side of the Road, and turn into the driveway opposite the tourism sign on your Left.

Once over the cattle grid, follow the cottage sign and you’ll eventually see the cottage. We will pop up and see you when you are settled.

For provisions there is a Woolworths at Upper Burnie on your way through from Burnie, it is on the right hand side of the road, you can’t miss it.

Looking forward to meeting you and wishing you a happy and enjoyable stay at Hide-Away Cottage.
