Bears Went Over the Mountain

Bears Went Over the Mountain is located right in the heart of Geeveston, southern Tasmania.
It is the perfect base for unwinding and exploring all the great attractions and scenery of Tasmania’s Far South and ideally situated for visiting the acclaimed Tahune Forest Air Walk, Eagle Hang Gliding, Hastings Caves and of course the magnificent Hartz Mountains.
All guests arriving mid-afternoon are served Devonshire Tea. The guest lounge is a spacious and comfortable area to relax in. Enjoy a fresh coffee or perhaps a glass of wine.
The theme of the Bed and Breakfast reflects an interest in bears and teddy bears – the rooms are named after some of the great teddy bear manufacturers of the early twentieth century; The Chiltern, The Steiff and The Milne, all with their own ensuites, and The Merrythoughts which has a spa ensuite.
All rooms feature modern facilities including air-conditioning, LCD televisions and a minibar. Indulge your taste buds with dinner in The Contented Bear, a fully licensed restaurant just a few steps from the accommodation.
Continental Breakfast is included in the tariff, along with complimentary Port and Chocolates.
Geeveston is 50 minutes’ drive (59 kilometres/37 miles) south of Hobart.
