Southport is a hidden gem in the far south of Tasmania.  Only a 10 minute drive past Dover - look out for the Southport turn off.

From forest to breathtaking ocean - incredible!

Explore the area, try your luck at fishing (our shack is so close to the ocean you can fish from our deck!) or just relax and enjoy.  Take in the peaceful sound of the crashing waves and keep a look out for the dolphins.

At our Southport Sound Beach Shack we believe in HOLIDAYS, RELAXING and ENJOYING each others company.  There's no TV, there's no WI FI - there's you, your guests and nature - so get away from the rat race and truly enjoy and relax on your next Tassie holiday.

We have everything you need to enjoy the comforts - bedding, linen, self-contained, open fire place, outside fire pit, beach deck, BBQ and most importantly - the best ocean views! Come on down and experience the magic for yourselves.

Hungry? If you want a night off from cooking head to the Southport Tavern (2 minute drive) or the Dover RSL (10 minute drive) for a good feed.

Hastings Caves & Thermal Pool

Just a short drive (approx. 15 minutes from Southport Sound Beach Shack) you'll come across the incredible Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs.

Take a dip in the thermal pool, heated by natural thermal spring water to a warm 28°C...bliss!


Pack a picnic or BBQ, take a walk through the surrounding forest or embark on the 45 minute guided cave tour adventure.

An experience not to be missed when exploring the far south of Tasmania.

Cockle Creek

Travel to the edge of the Tasmanian Wilderness to Cockle Creek, in Recherche Bay. 


This is as far south as you can travel to, on wheels, in Australia and is breathtakingly stunning!

Explore the area, rich in history - including Aboriginal sites, abandoned railways, ruins, gravestones and a spectacular beach with white sands and crystal blue waters.  Perfect for the explorer, relaxer, hiker, kayaker or fisherman/woman.

Located approx. 30 minute drive from our Southport Sound Beach Shack.

Approximately 45 minutes drive from our shack is the Tahune Adventures in Geeveston – a MUST visit when in the far south of Tasmania!


Explore the incredible 600-meter treetop walkway ending at a spectacular cantilevered platform 50 metres above the riverbank. 


Embark on riverside walks among Huon and King Billy pines, or take a walk on the swing bridge crossovers traversing the Huon and Picton Rivers confluence.  

Tahune Adventures also offer Eagle Hang Gliding to top it off for those that are game!

Duckhole Lake is located 20 minutes (drive) from Southport Sound Beach Shack.

A tranquil and easy rainforest walk (one hour return trip - suitable for all ages) follows a late 19th century sawmill tramway for much of the way, and remnants of the tramway can still be seen. 


Duckhole Lake is well worth the visit walking alongside the scenic mountain creek and rainforest to reach the now flooded sinkhole.

Some say the entrance to the walk for Duckhole Lake can be difficult to find so we've included a link to the Parks & Wildlife Service to assist!
