Dover

Far south relaxing

Dover sits quietly overlooking the islands of Faith, Hope and Charity. The fishing village is as peaceful and dreamy as the island names suggest. Primarily a fishing village, Dover is around an hour and a half drive from Hobart.

This is the type of destination where long beach walks are a must. Drop a line off the wharf or stay in an old farmhouse where an entire peninsula is all yours, complete with your own private walks and picnic bench where the next stop in Antarctica- not a bad place to enjoy lunch. In Dover, you don’t need to hurry. Time slows down when you’re this far south.

Back in the 19th century, Dover’s major industry was timber. Huon pine and other timbers were shipped from Dover straight to China, Germany and other international destinations for use as railway sleepers. These days it’s fruit growing and fish farming. Abalone, crayfish and in particular Atlantic salmon are exported to Asia.

One of the most popular nearby destinations is Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs. Take a guided tour of the caves and slip into comfy 28 degree Celsius water from thermal springs. It doesn’t get any more relaxing than a soak at the thermal springs before returning to Dover for wood-fired pizza at the local restaurant. Rise early for a kayak on the still waters of Esperance Bay or pack your hiking boots and explore the nearby trails.
