Welcome to Southern Forest Accommodation. Located in Southport, Tasmania's Far South, we provide a relaxing and comfortable place to stay for anyone enjoying a quiet getaway in a natural setting. We are not far from a choice of four beaches in Southport and just a short drive away from the Southwest Wilderness World Heritage area. If it is nature you are seeking, then come to the Far South. Only 90 minutes south of Hobart and you'll find wild coast lines, deserted beaches, magical temperate rainforests, dolerite caves, fabulous walks either up mountains, through forests or along the coast. Visit Hastings Caves, Ida Bay Railway, Cockle Creek or just enjoy the quiet little bays.
