Where you’ll be

Longford, Tasmania, Australia

Newry is wonderfully located being less than 5 minutes’ drive from the nearby historic townships of Longford and Perth, between 10-15 minutes drive to Launceston Airport, 15-20 minutes drive to Launceston township and 2 minutes’ drive to a main road with direct, ready and central access to all parts of Tasmania.
Despite Newrys location close to local townships and Launceston, it is a beautiful, private country retreat. From the moment that one enters the driveway to the farm, one encounters the beautiful, private and serene world of a charming Tasmanian country property.
