The possum-pad is a great base location to explore the eastern part of Tassie. St Mary's is a very small and quiet town (especially after 7pm), that we were glad to experience. It is our first experience (coming from Singapore), waking up to 2 fluffy well fed sheeps just across our lawn. Elaine was a wonderful host. She's really lovely. The place was simple and comfortable, yet equipped for a short stay. Thank you Elaine for your hospitality. We truly are pleased with our 2 nights stay at the Possum-pad. I am writing this, while enjoying the awesome coffee from the cafe just at the back of possum-pad.

Elaine communicated quickly and was very helpful before our trip. The Possum Pad is a good base to explore the East Coast and the Wholefood shop has loads of tasty treats.

Possum Pad is in the quiet village of St Mary's. A great central location to explore the Bay of Fires and surrounding coastline. We had everything we needed and enjoyed our two nights there.

Best room we stayed in during our time in Tasmania, and the coffee at the purple possum was sublime.
