Burilda Waters is situated on Big Possum Beach with views of Carnarvon Bay. The location is central to the numerous attractions that are located on the Tasman Peninsula and the Port Arthur Historic Site is only five minutes away by car.  If you prefer to walk there is a coastal track that starts at the northerly end of the bay.  For those who appreciate the outdoor environment, a prolonged visit would be required to explore this region with its inspirational coastal walks and spectacular views.

Burilda Waters is a self contained cottage providing spacious accommodation with views of Carnarvon Bay and the Isle of the Dead. The upstairs main bedroom with ensuite sleeps two in a queen size bed. There is a second lounge area, two bedrooms a bathroom and toilet downstairs. The ocean view bedroom has a queen size bed and the other bedroom a single bed.

It is so relaxing to sit back in the upstairs lounge/dining room or the balcony and savour the ever changing moods of Carnarvon Bay with the boats and yachts anchored there.  Usually you will see black swans, ducks, terns and cormorants feeding and if you are lucky the occasional cruise ship. Whilst you are enjoying the panoramic views you can watch a DVD on the flat screen television, or listen to a compact disc on the hi-fi system. In the cooler months it is a pleasure just to sit in front of the wood fire and savour the view.

A general store and a bottle shop are located on the Nubeena Road 10km away, just before the White Beach turn off.  A bakery with take away food is located at Nubeena.  For extended holidays it would be prudent to shop in Sorell as local supermarkets may not have your favourite products.  There are bars at the Port Arthur Motor Inn and at the Fox and Hounds.
