28 gates is a little piece of luxury only 1 hours drive from Hobart and nestled in the Derwent Valley. Located on “Bloomfield” , a 7th generation grazing property that dates back to 1862. The building itself, originally a stables and grain lofts and then shearers quarters has been delicately refurbished to premium accommodation offering many spoils.
We are well known for a strong Fly Fishing culture with 3 Lakes stocked with Wild Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and the elusive Tiger Trout. If you don’t fly fish or are keen to improve your skills, we can organise one of our fabulous guides to teach you. The benefit of fishing here is you do not need a licence and you have the lakes all to yourselves.
We do allow lure fishing but encourage barbless hooks. Please head to our website for more detailed information and we look forward to welcoming and sharing our property and lakes with you
