Originally from Auchterarder in Scotland and London, England, we moved to Australia in 2002. Like many people, we stumbled across Tasmania on holiday when we were living in Queensland, fell in love with the state and moved there as soon as was humanly possible. We opened our first B&B in White Beach in 2005. In 2007 we had the good fortune to find Harpers Place right on beautiful White Beach and spent the next 2 years purpose building Harpers  on the Beach, with 3 individual queen en-suite rooms, a 2 bedroom cottage and a self-contained studio. Harpers on the Beach was opened in July 2009.

If you look out of the window at Harpers, you'll know why we live on White Beach, one of the few remaining unspoilt places on this amazing and threatened planet. There is something very, very special about White Beach and the Tasman Peninsula. Just magic.
