Shires of Myrtle Forest is a heavy horse stud located at Myrtle Forest on the back of Mount Wellington, just outside Hobart. Located on a highland mountain property in the cool-temperature rainforest just 15 minutes from the outskirts of Hobart.
There is a beautiful year-round creek, resident heavy horses and great walking tracks. The site is located a few hundred metres from the Myrtle Forest walk and waterfall.
Unpowered sites are located on the forest fringe, each with a firepit. Firewood is available so you can sit and enjoy the cool mountain evenings around the roaring fire.
There is lovely rainforest to explore and wildlife abounds... wallabies, potoroos, wombats, bandicoots and Eastern quoll.
Visitors must be self-contained. Dogs are not permitted. Facilitated daily walks available by appt.
In summer, days are balmy with views of Mount Wellington and in winter there is snow to play in.
Our resident horses love attention and a few carrots. The site breeds shire horses and Freyja, the resident drum horse loves a pat.
