Orford is a town in the East Coast region of Tasmania and is 75 kilometres from Hobart and located at the mouth of the Prosser River with a population of around 600 people and some pet friendly accommodation.

Orford was named by Edward Walpole, who was granted 1,000 acres in the area in 1831. It was first settled as a mainland port on Maria Island. The larger township of Triabunna approximately 6 km north of Orford is the main port in the area, and is home base for the region's fishing and timber industries, as well as the ferry service operating between Orford and Maria Island.

Orford Post Office opened on 1 September 1870.

A quarry situated between Orford and Spring Beach provided sandstone for use in buildings in Hobart and Melbourne, including the Melbourne General Post Office.

Orford is a very appealing town and boasts pet friendly accommodation in cottages, beach houses, retreats, and pet friendly bed and breakfasts.

Pet services other than pet friendly accommodation at Orford include pet breeders, vets, pet food outlets, horse riding opportunities, pet friendly dining, and pet supplies and accessories.

The people of Orford would love you to pay a visit and they would welcome you to with open arms, so don't think, just do, book your pet friendly accommodation today and head to Orford at your first opportunity.
