Close, but far away
A little-known area to retreat to
The Top Place, while extremely secluded, can be reached within one hour’s drive from the Launceston or Devonport CBDs and airports, and 20 minutes from Deloraine. It is accessed via Haberles Road, a 1.5km gravel drive off Western Creek Road.
The 100-acre property is owned by Roderick and Lynn Dowling and has been in the family for nearly 50 years. It is one of very few in the area not put into hardwood plantation because of its stunning position, environmental diversity and ecologically unique setting. It sits about 450 metres above sea level, providing not only expansive views but coverings of snow through winter.
