Five Best Aquatic Aussie Hideaways
Sand and Sundowners: Sophie Lam finds a wealth of waterside boltholes Down Under

These two properties on the west coast of Tasmania are inspired by the sea. Each resembles a fishing trawler (albeit a luxury one), with the glass-fronted living room cantilevered over a cliff above Macquarie Harbour.

The nautical theme is continued in the bedrooms (one sleeps two, the other four), which feature porthole windows.

On the deck, these is a barbeque where you can grill freshly caught crayfish while sipping a sundowner.
