Tamrock is a shack and residence "off the grid" at Trial Harbour on the rugged West Coast of Tasmania. As a guest you will have full use of the ‘Original Shack’ the enclosed garage and the upstairs relaxation area. Trial Harbour offers the best in surfing, fishing, diving, walking, fossicking, biking, forna, flora, birdwatching, generally relaxing and watching the world go by in the warm and cosy Tamrock.


‘Tamrock’ offers a bit of the old and new in accommodation, parts of the ‘Original Shack’ come from the old Teepookana School House which is on the West Coast Wilderness Railway Line. An old slow combustion stove warms the cosy retreat. The ‘New’ has both a down stairs rumpus room and living room upstairs all built to withstand The Roaring 40’s, plus perhaps the best view in Trial Harbour.
Tamrock is a comfortable, warm and well equipped shack, situated in the small community of Trial Harbour. It is a minutes’ walk from the beach. At night you hear powerful waves hitting the coast. The fishing and diving is exceptional, the waves can be intimidating so are not for the beginner. The Fauna and Flora are unique and the Coast line rugged. In the morning you can wake up to the sounds of the Grey Shrike-Thrush, Olive Whistler, Silver Eyes, Spotted Pardalotes, Superb Fairy Wrens and Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos. During the day we witness flights of our White Bellied – Sea Eagle. The beach and foreshore are home to Pied Oyster Catchers, Pacific Gulls, Hooded Plovers and Australian Pied Cormorant. We are on the migratory path of the Orange Bellied Parrot, as it travels between South West Tasmania and Coastal Victoria and South Australia. There are many Native animals in close proximity to your accommodation, including Tasmanian Devils, Brushtail Possums, Pademelons’ (Small Fat Wallabies), Bennets Wallabies, Wombats and our many own micro Bats. The Flora includes Native Pigface, Melaleuca (many types), Tasmanian Waratah, Blandfordia (Christmas Bells), Myrtle Rain Forest, Coastal Health, Orchids and Correas. There is little creek nearby that ideal for children to fish in. Our grandkids love it and spend many hours catching and gently releasing the ‘tiddlies’ (Native galaxis) into the creek. Many visitors to Trial Harbour comment on the wilderness of our coast line and its similarity to the coasts of Scotland and Ireland.

Доступно гостям

The Host will welcome you into the cosy and well equipped ‘Tamrock’ and assist you when required. You are welcome to use the whole shack apart from the upstairs bedroom, bathroom and study. The “Old Shack” has a gas fridge, gas stove, and gas heater and gas hot water which can also be heated via the slow combustion stove. Linen and Towels are supplied.

Trial Harbour is a beautiful place... loved the sound of the sea and the changeable weather, the great walks and especially the warm hospitality that David offers. He has a wealth of local knowledge. Fantastic views from atop David's place. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was there in the accommodation.

Tamrock has all the necessities....good cooking pans, cooking facilities, enough teatowels, plastic bags etc. All those things that make being away from home and living out of a suitcase necessary. My bed was comfortable too. It may be a shack, with the expected old furniture etc, but it was exceptionally clean and warm. It's a cold and wild location but we had loads of firewood to keep the wood fire oven/burner burning, and the shower was beautifully hot for both of us. The view from David's upstairs apartment window is nothing less than spectacular, and if you had a family, there are games, ping pong etc. For us, a weekend by the fire and walking the coast was the plan and that is what we got in wintery doses. David was a polite host who communicated well, greeted us when we arrived and ensured we were OK thru the stay. Thank you.

Our stay at David and Mandy's was a treat for the soul - to experience the local Trial Harbour community, David's generosity and friendliness, spectacular Ocean beach and being "off the grid". The old shack is simple and comfortable, the kids had a ball playing table tennis, darts, quoits, monopoly - no shortage of games and activities for them. We based ourselves for 5 days and enjoyed the local walks as well as trips further afield (Montezuma's Falls, Henty Dunes - David loaned us a board to go sand surfing - a highlight for the kids). Luckily we scored some sunshine which made our beach walk south like paradise - spent an entire day walking, sand surfing and exploring the stunning coast (no other humans in sight).

We had a lovely and relaxing weekend at Trial harbour at Mandy and David's shack. It was warm and cosy inside and wild and windy out! We loved exploring the area: 4wding, mountain biking and spending time at the beach and the range of games that were on offer at the shack for both us and my three year old. David made us feel very welcome, even bringing us down an Easter treat of half a crayfish and some eggs! Definitely recommend the place.

David and Mandy were wonderful hosts, we had a fantastic stay and everything we required was provided. Cosy, clean and the most comfortable beds. We thoroughly enjoyed the walks, beachcombing and socialising with the locals. The local seafood provided by our host was delicious. Thank you for making us feel welcome and taking care of us.

David was a helpful host, he welcomed us to the property, showed us around and provided information on the area. The shack was very comfortable and clean, the beds were great. We were a little disappointed that we did not have views from our part of the shack but we were welcome to use the upstairs shared area where there were views, we chose not to do that as we didn't want to encroach on David's space. (This was on us as David had said we were welcome too). Trial Harbour itself was beautiful, unfortunately the March flies made the beach virtually uninhabitable (even with the bush and kindly given by David). When we go back we will make sure it is not in March fly season.

Mandy and I have had the shack at Trial Harbour since 2003 and extended the ‘Original Shack’ in 2009 when I was working at the Avebury Nickel Mine (10 Km East) – it took us a while to move ‘upstairs’ because we enjoy the ambiance of the ‘Original Shack’ so much – we eventually ma…
