Somerset Beachside Cabin & Caravan Park

Caravan Park - Tasmania


Located forty minutes drive from Devonport where the boat lands from Melbourne, fifteen minutes from Burnie Airport, forty minutes from the Stanley Nut and an hour and half away from Cradle Mountain. The nearest major city to us is Burnie, about 6 kms. Many people base their trips to the north west corner of Tassie from our park as it allows them to enjoy the drive and scenery without the constant awareness of having a van in tow. For those touring on motor bikes, there are about three good circular days riding of 3-4 hours per day plus numerous country rides!

The Somerset Beachside Cabin and Caravan Park is a lovely serene park located on about 12 acres of land, The sites are large, flat and easy to get to, the cabins are simple and warm, and the ambiance of the whole place is friendly and easy. We have a beautiful café located onsite and plenty of magical gardens and fruit trees for people to walk around and enjoy.

Fortunately the park has been laid out with the camper and not the banker in mind, ie the sites haven’t been squeezed in at all. All of the powered sites are within about 40 meters of the amenities block (which is never locked) and all have direct access to beautiful clean water. Many sites are also surrounded by low trees which can act as a wind break. There are about 42 powered sites available on the park, and most sites can handle any length van or mobile home with ease.

The unpowered sites are located on two individual areas of about 2 acres of well kept grassland which is protected by a range of native and pine trees. The unpowered sites are about 45 meters away from the amenities block. Campers have the opportunity to camp wherever they like within these areas which does almost ensure maximum privacy for those seeking it.

Stayed on the fourth and fifth September when showing my member card I was told that the park wasn’t a cmca park. Payed $30:00 a night. Enjoyed the park nice and quite good amenities

Close to Burnie. Park owners very helpful, however amenities are showing signs of wear. Sites large but not too much grass.

9/10/2021 Just rang this park to confirm if they were still part of the CMCA Dollar Wise Park following a previous comment that they weren’t. Guy who answered the phone said that they were not but asked questions about the arrangement and said he would check with his bosses. The answer is that they STILL BELONG TO THE CMCA DOLLAR WISE SYSTEM and that it had hardly been used. Maybe from the previous comment and staff not knowing the routine either. Anyway they are open to CMCA members…. T87625
