HACSU Members work hard so good holidays are important. Did you know that as a HACSU Member you’re a “part-owner” of four holiday homes throughout Tasmania?



There are both weeks available at HACSU Holiday Homes for the September/October School Holidays.  These vacancies are:

Arthurs Lake:    2 Oct – 10 Oct 2015

Sandy Bay:         8 Oct – 10 Oct 2015

Southport:          27 Sep – 1 Oct 2015, 4 – 8 Oct 2015 

St Helens:          2 Oct – 3 Oct 2015, 9 – 10 Oct 2015

To make a booking for one of these vacancies or to be considered in the ballot for school holidays at the end of Term 4 in 2015, contact Laura via HACSUassist 

To book for Off-Peak periods call HACSUassist on 1300 880 032. 

Bookings for Peak periods (school holidays) at St Helens and Southport are determined via ballot. Call HACSUassist on 1300 880 032 to register your interest. Ballots are drawn three months prior to the nominated Peak period. 

The Sandy Bay unit is not ballotted, and is available on a first-in, first-served basis.

Our Arthurs Lake property is now available for a flat rate all year round.

Only HACSU members are eligible to rent HACSU Holiday Homes and the responsible member/s must stay throughout the entire rental period.

Standby rates are now available for all properties.  Standby rates can only be accessed within 14 days prior to the booking (7 days during ballot periods).

We have also introduced a Long Weekend rate during off peak times; which is for a 3 night weekend stay that includes a Sunday night at either Sandy Bay, Southport or St Helens.

See below for conditions.

Next time you’re thinking of a getaway in Tasmania, give HACSU a call on 1300 880 032. The rates are easy on the budget, leaving you more cash to enjoy your well-deserved holiday.



A deposit is required upon collection of keys, which is refunded upon keys’ return. Keys must be returned within one week of the end of the rental period.

To help keep rental costs down, it is the responsibility of members staying at the holiday homes to ensure they are left clean and tidy for the next member, and to immediately report any breakages or faults. General cleaning products (detergent, all-purpose cleaner and sponges, etc) are not provided and should be taken with you to clean the home prior to departure. In the event the holiday homes are left unclean you may forfeit your deposit or be unable to rent the holiday homes again.

Health laws require that you supply your own linen (doonas, sheets, blankets, pillows, pillowcases, towels, etc) or they can be hired from HACSU ($35 per double bed-set and $25 per single-bed set). Linen can be collected from either the Hobart or Launceston HACSU offices 8.30am to 5pm at the time of collecting keys (payment for linen hire is required upon linen collection). Linen is unfortunately not available to North-West members unless they are able to collect linen from either the Hobart or Launceston offices.

HACSU Holiday Homes are totally smoke-free environments. Pets are not allowed (registered assistance animals exempt for members with a disability).
