Middleton Memories

by Lorraine McNeair

We needed a break, and as my daughter, husband and puppy dog were coming with me, we needed a pet-friendly place to stay.  After some intensive web-wandering we found an abode at Middleton, which is on the edge of the water in the Huon Valley/Channel region.  What an idyllic place for a quiet, relaxing spell.  Only the sound of the gulls, and the whisper of the water as it ebbed and flowed.

Middleton: Much to Offer

Middleton is a quiet rural town with lots of views of the sea and the lovely green fields that only the Huon can provide.  We were situated at the end of a quiet gravel road and could sit outside and gaze across the D’Entrecasteaux Channel at Bruny Island, another place we have stayed (but that’s another story!).

One day we were delighted with the antics of a pod of dolphins as they leaped and played in the sparkling waters.  Another day, when it rained, we were treated to the sight of wooded hills wreathed in mist, and that’s when we played cards and other games. We must have enjoyed our stay because we returned several months later for another visit, and we are already looking forward to our next visit to Middleton.

Who wouldn’t want to return to the Huon Valley for more peaceful relaxation?
