Campsites are alongside Franklin Rivulet at Harford, a picturesque tidal estuary, providing leisure activities such as fishing, boating, kayaking, bushwalking, bird watching, oystering, wildlife spotting, egg collecting, and dog patting.
Located just 15mins to Port Sorell, Bakers Beach, Narawntapu NP, and Anvers Chocolate Factory. 25mins to Devonport, 1hr to Launceston, 1.5hrs to Cradle Mt and surrounded by attractions from Berry Farms to Wineries and stunning farmland.
'Farm on Franklin' is a 50 acre property being developed into a Regenerative Agriculture based family farm endeavouring to be environmentally sustainable, and economically viable.
This is a beautiful natural campground on land near our home.
You must be fully self-contained with your own toilet/shower and leave no trace.
You'll feel a million miles away by a lovely river, but actually so close to the best attractions Tassie has to offer, it's also a destination in itself:-)

Farm on Franklin was everything that it says it is and more. A lovely serene parcel of peace on the edge of the bush overlooking the tidal river. Sarah & family were very welcoming but also left me to enjoy. Their house is far enough away to give campers space to explore. Sausages delicious too!

One of the greatest places I've ever stayed. A friend and I had the best times waking up in the beautiful area, enjoying morning eggs from the farm, kayaking, oystering, walking, and chilling next to the fire at night. The family is incredibly welcoming and kind, so don't hesitate to stay here :)

We absolutely loved Farm on Franklin. Sarah and Mark are lovely and are excellent hosts. Waking up with a beautiful view of the river was amazing. We could not recommend this place highly enough. We stayed for 5 night but still wished we had longer! Amazing!
