We love the buzz of the city, but sometimes we need to escape the chaos and find a slice of country serenity for the weekend. Captains Rest, in Strahan, Tasmania, is a peaceful and thoughtfully furnished property on the water’s edge with a deep bath for soaking away stressful commutes and watching local fishers go about their daily catch.

It’s a property managed by author, designer and teacher Sarah Andrews – and it’s been featured in magazines such as Conde Nast Traveller, Country Style and Real Living for its antique windows, heritage furniture and views across Teepookana Forest Reserve.

It sleeps two, in a queen bed dressed in Carlotta & Gee French linen sheets, and its well-stocked pantry means you can bring basics from Hobart or Launceston on the way and ensconce yourself here for an entire weekend.

In collaboration with Captains Rest and Carlotta & Gee, Broadsheet is giving away a two-night stay at the accommodation, as well as a $500 Carlotta & Gee voucher to spend on kitting out your own haven in luxury linen, and a copy of Sarah Andrews’ book Principles of Style, valued at $49.95.

To enter, follow Broadsheet in your city (@broadsheet.adelaide, @broadsheet.brisbane, @broadsheet_melb, @broadsheet_syd or @broadsheet.perth) as well as @carlottandgee and @captainsrest on Instagram, then enter your details below for a chance to win.




This competition is open to Australian residents only. The total prize pool is valued at $1749.95. Entries close on Friday July 8 at 5pm. For a full list of prizes, see the terms and conditions.
