Location

Mount Rumney, Tasmania, Australia

Mt Canopus is approx. 11 kms from Hobart CBD. It is an easy drive or can be accessed by taxi, however we are always up and down the hill so could be available for a lift.
Bellerive is the closest suburb which has some lovely dining options. The shopping precinct has a large range of of retail shops. But the jewel in the crown is our easy access to the Coal River Valley, the Tasman Peninsula and the picturesque East Coast of Tasmania. We can provide detailed information of its’ many sight seeing opportunities in our booklet.
The Meehan Ranges on the outskirts of Hobart have much more to offer to the keen mountain bike rider. Starting at the end of Belbins Road there is a complex network of tracks and trails heading up over the Meehan Ranges which make a great playground for beginner through to advanced riders.  

We are within 10 mins of the Hobart International Airport and can by negotiation provide transport.
