The Lufra Hotel and Apartments are located on Pirates Bay Drive in Eaglehawk Neck. The ‘Neck’ is famous for the ‘dog line’ which was instrumental in confining ‘convicts’ to the Tasman Peninsula, housing the infamous Port Arthur penal settlement of the early 1800’s.
The hotel overlooking Pirates Bay (and the site of the ‘dog line’) and is just 5 kilometers from the Tasman National Park. A trip to Eaglehawk Neck is not complete without visiting the Port Arthur Historic Site around 20 minutes away by car.
Located directly across the road is the ‘Tessellated Pavement’, a rarely seen geographical feature. The view is nothing short of sensational, overlooking Pirates Bay and down the outer coast of the peninsula. It is a view that you could just sit and admire for hours and still see something new.
Approximately 1 hours travel from Hobart, the Lufra provides convenient transit options to the Hobart city attractions or easy access to the historic and natural attractions of the Tasman Peninsula. This hotel is within driving distance of Shipstern Bluff.
Lufra provides meals as good as you can get with a combination of full restaurant service in the evening and day time casual cafe providing hot and cold beverages, light snacks and substantial lunches throughout the day. Continental breakfasts are available in the restaurant every morning.
Drop by for your morning paper and coffee at our ‘Whale Watchers Cafe’, yes whales can be seen from our dining areas when they visit Pirates Bay. There is always a variety of meals and refreshments on offer.
In the evening join us in ‘The Pavement Restaurant’ named after the famous geological formation ‘Tessellated Pavement’ situated on the foreshore below the Hotel. The menu consists of a full range of dishes crafted with quality ingredients with local seafood, meats and produce at the centre. Children are catered for with a special menu just for them. If you like to mix with the locals a happy hour is hosted each day from 5pm right up to 6pm when the restaurant opens.
