We’ve been publishing a series of articles about Hawthorn Villa Stables in Carrick. We hinted of a secret in store for readers of Think Tasmania… “that may or may not involve a giveaway with accommodation at Hawthorn Villa Stables as the prize”. Okay, so it wasn’t a very well-kept secret. We just can’t help ourselves when we have such great news for you. And as the door to one opportunity closes today (the chance to win accommodation at Beachside Retreat, Stanley), it’s time to bring you the details of our next giveaway. Good luck everyone.

Think Tasmania readers can win an accommodation package worth $220 at Hawthorn Villa Stables

Hawthorn Villa Stables: The Secret is Out

Innes and Nicole Pearce from Hawthorn Villa Stables are offering accommodation for one night in a self-contained unit for a couple. It’s a great way to encourage people to visit Carrick and explore the small town and surrounding region. Plus the winner will receive champagne, chocolates and a breakfast basket. The prize is valued at $220.00, and the booking is subject to room availability.


As we’ve said before, the competition rules on Facebook are all too mind-boggling, so we’re going to keep this in-house. We’re also going to keep it REALLY simple. If you are subscribed to receive the free newsletter from Think Tasmania, you are eligible to enter. Apparently a random draw is still allowed in Tasmania without applying for a permit, so here’s what you need to do…

Step 1 – be a subscriber to the FREE newsletter from Think Tasmania*

Step 2 – leave a reply at the bottom of this article.

And that’s it! This will be a random draw, so comments won’t influence the outcome. But if you’d like to leave any feedback about Hawthorn Villa Stables or the owners; your personal desire to win this prize, or even Think Tasmania… we’d love to hear it. We’ll be closely following all the comments. We won’t reply individually because that would upset the giveaway app (it might award us the prize if we comment!!).

*We ask that you subscribe to Think Tasmania for these giveaway opportunities
for several reasons. Of course we’d prefer any prizes go to dedicated followers;
and we need to make sure we can contact the winners. What makes it to the
Newsfeed of Facebook is a bit random, and not everyone even uses social media.
Most people can receive an email however, so that’s our sure-fire way of
reaching everyone. And finally, we like to share all the great things on offer
in Tasmania with as many interested readers as possible – that’s our mission!
