RiverFly Tasmania adds lodge accommodation to its business

Quamby Estate Homestead

Quamby Estate Homestead

We are excited to announce that after a two-year hiatus from providing lodge accommodation, RiverFly Tasmania is once again offering river-based lodge accommodation and all inclusive packages to its guests. Through a strategic alliance with Quamby Estate, a large Anglo-Indian 1830’s estate just 15 minutes west of Launceston, we now have a new home for the accommodation side of our business central to Tasmania’s northern rivers. (In fact, the Meander River forms part of the magnificent views from the estate).

The estate is operated as a part of Anthology www.anthology.travel, a new eco-tourism travel group who also owns and operates the world famous Cradle Huts and Bay of Fires Walks from Quamby Estate. The partnership between Anthology and RiverFly Tasmania is great news for the $60M Tasmanian recreational fishing industry, which over the past two seasons has struggled to offer a critical-mass of dedicated accommodation linked to professional, full-time guides, since the recent sales of Blue Lake Lodge and London Lakes.

RiverFly Tasmania and Quamby Estate have launched two initial packages, starting at three days and three nights from $1662 per person for two anglers. Visit RiverFly’s three day fly fishing page for more information. We will update our normal packages page to include the new packages over the next week.

Coporate retreats are also catered for with RiverFly Tasmania and Quamby Estate, offering opportunities for guided fly fishing as well as golf on the Estate’s own 9-hole golf course, as well as helicopter tours for the adventurous.
