With one of the highest repeat visitation rates of any state in Australia, Tasmanian tourism is booming. In an industry dominated by small businesses, Tasmania gives mainlanders the chance to escape the rat race and enjoy lifestyle and business. With the steepest mountain bike descent about to open in their backyard, Maydena has gone from funky cold Maydena to so hot right now!

Rachel Power and her family fell in love with Tasmania. 5 years ago the Power Family took ownership of Waterfalls Cafe in stunning Mt Field National Park, 10 minutes from Maydena. Together with a tight knit team of local staff, Rachel has worked to showcase her region to the world, it’s worked. Mt Field National Park has exploded in visitation and Waterfalls Cafe & Gallery (and Rachel) have been recognised for their achievements.

2 years ago however Rachel started to build two more dreams. Mountain Cafe at Maydena was a failed Forestry attempt in the Tourism market, and Mt Field Retreat a multi-million dollar accommodation, conference and hospitality training centre to be built on the doorstep to Mt Field.

Intrinsically linked, Mountain Cafe is about to become the catalyst to see Mt Field Retreat finally a reality. Fighting to secure funding for their essential infrastructure project has seen just how out of touch banks are with the needs of rural Tasmania. Mountain Cafe – and the ability for your very own tree change dream – is now on the market.

  • Tree change business and residence offered for sale at less than the average house price of most mainland cities.
  • Maydena Bike Park, due to open in January, has seen property snapped up by mountain biking enthusiasts from all over Australia.
  • Houses previously couldn’t sell at $80,000, now at almost triple that price they are snapped up before they reach the open market.
  • 38 year old mother of 3, owner of 2 cafe’s and recently awarded Tasmanian Innovator of the Year. Rachel Power will train the next dream seeker.

“The people are amazing, the location is beyond stunning and we know it captures everyone’s imaginations when they visit. I would never have dreamt we would achieve so much, now it’s time for someone else to feel that too.” Rachel said.
