Not just for meditators, the Hillwood Road Meditation Skills Centre is a place where anyone is welcome to drop in and enjoy the surroundings. The centre is beside a creek and surrounded by hobby farms in a small country town, close to the Tamar River in the quiet beauty of North East Tasmania.

The interior is decorated with original artwork including a three metre high apple mandala.
You are welcome to drop in, make yourself a cuppa, and relax in an armchair. Enjoy the scenery, there is plenty to read and you are welcome to join a class ($5-$10) if one is about to begin. You can ask for a guided tour, guided meditation, or book a session for counselling, deep-state therapy or tuition (fees apply).
We also offer accommodation or retreats nearby. Make it a complete spiritual getaway by spending a few nights in Hillwood and attending a combination of meditation meetings and personal sessions for stress management or spiritual growth. A program can be tailor-made for you or your group. See our website.

St Matthias' Anglican Church


"Visitors gaze on a little village church, simple and unpretentious in design, standing on the grassy river bank, backed with fine trees and reflected in the calm water of the Tamar River" (Frank Heyward, The Examiner 1939).
St Matthias' Anglican Church, surrounded by a beautiful, peaceful 173 year old graveyard, is located in the rural village of Windermere and is a heritage-listed icon in Northern Tasmania. The church was built in 1842 fulfilling a promise by Dr Matthius Gaunt to his young wife before they left England. His wife was concerned that there may not be a church in the area where they would make their home. Dr Gaunt promised that if there was not, he would build one for her. St Matthias' is one of Australia's oldest rural churches and has been in continuous use since its foundation. A Eucharist Service is held every second and fourth Sunday at 1030.
The church has been painted and photographed by many recognised artists. This beautiful bluestone gothic chapel with its romantic history is a popular spot for weddings, baptisms and picnics. The scenic drive around Windermere Road is an easy detour from the East Tamar Highway. Audio tour available via smartphone.

Brady's Lookout


A unique attraction in the Tamar Valley, Brady's Lookout was once the hideout for bushranger Mathew Brady. Ample parking, BBQ, toilets, all access ramps and viewing platforms, this is a great spot for a selfie or a picnic lunch. Views up and down the Tamar River with the vista extending over 120kms to Ben Lomond massif in the south and almost all the way to the coast and Bass Strait to the north.
The viewing platforms are set right on the cliff edge with the escarpment falling away to the river 140 metres below. There is also interpretation signage in regard to Mathew Brady telling the story of a bushranger who irritated the government in his exploits while winning the hearts of the female colonists. When finally captured, Brady was showered with gifts while incarcerated and had the crowd wailing at his hanging.
