Wybalena Lodge

Thursday, August 31, 2000
This simply beautiful Edwardian b&b in Tasmania's north-east corner will spoil you with its stunning water views, elegant decor, manicured gardens and celebrated cuisine.

Beverley and Graham Enticott searched for two years for the perfect b&b. When they saw the 1909 Edwardian Wybalenna they knew their search was over. Wybalenna means "Resting Place", the perfect name for their beautiful lodge.

It has a full-length verandah where guests can enjoy a view of the gardens, tall trees packed with birds and manicured lawns rolling to the edge of Georges Bay.

There are four rooms to choose from, three double and one twin, all totally refurbished and elegantly decorated, and all with ensuite. Two of the rooms are in the main house, the others are charming cottages. There is also a deluxe suite. Wherever you stay there are water views.

Wybalenna's breakfasts are becoming famous. There is a full selection of hot food, as well as homemade muesli and a wide range of fresh fruits. On the cooler mornings there is a welcoming open fire burning in the breakfast room. Three or four course dinners can be arranged, created from local produce and seafood from George's Bay, Tasmania's largest fishing port. Local wines are gaining deserved popularity; you're bound to find one to complement your meal.

Sealers and whalers settled St Helens in 1830, followed by farmers in the 1850s. When in 1874 it was found that many of the hills in the area were rich in tin, mining began and the sheltered St Helens Harbour was the perfect place for shipping. When the mines stopped operating and the mining towns died, St Helens continued to flourish. It is the largest town in Tasmania's northeastern corner.

You can go boating in the bay or deep-sea fishing. There is a nine-hole golf course, waterfalls, bushwalking and white talcum-like sand dunes and beaches.
