Introduction

The Yarn Retreat Launceston will run from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June 2022 at Peppers Silo Hotel, Tasmania.  This retreat also offers the opportunity for you to extend your stay (depart Monday 6 June) and add an additional day of workshops.

Tasmania is one of the most magnificent places you can visit in Australia and from the moment I stepped off the plane I felt it.  I am so excited to offer you a place at The Yarn Retreat Launceston in June 2022.  The combination of clean air, stunning views and local produce is just the start. This retreat will have it all including the perfect opportunity to actually wear all those handknits you have lovingly created.

Venue: Peppers Silo Hotel, Launceston

Bringing history alive on the banks of the idyllic Tamar River is the unique characterful Peppers Silo Hotel. Dating back to the 1960’s, the heritage building which spanned 35 metres high containing grain in four large silos, is an iconic landmark converted into a sophisticated 9 storey hotel providing a unique place to stay in Launceston.

Designed within the original silos and the new North tower are beautifully appointed modern hotel rooms with all of the modern amenities. Plush interiors are decorated with earthy tones to compliment the surrounds and offer in-room complimentary WiFi, LCD TV with Chromecast and Foxtel channels, mini bar and guest ensuite. Taking in sweeping views over the meandering river, the Gorge River Rooms and Premier Suites boast private balconies where you can soak in Launceston’s natural ambience.

Overlooking nearby Seaport, Royal Park, the Tamar River Basin and Cataract Gorge, guests are centrally placed to walk from this Launceston hotel to the city centre, with public transport a mere five-minute stroll away across the footbridge, linking Seaport and Kings Wharf together. Should you require assistance our tour desk operators can recommend the best attractions to visit during your stay.
