Alto Franklin

Executive luxury overlooking the Huon River

Enjoy executive style living along with the splendour of stunning Tasmanian surrounds at this luxury property.

Commanding the top of a ridge known as Heriot’s Rise, sits Alto Franklin. Taking in a vast swathe of Tasmania’s picturesque Huon River, this deftly designed modern home is fitting for such a prominent location.

The simple, modern form of the building is artfully resolved with a premium palette of materials: American White Oak floors, an Italian slate feature wall, Escea gas fire and Tasmanian Oak joinery. However, it is what is beyond the glass walls that really absorbs.

Heriot’s Point is a peninsula that punctuates the Huon River and affors the Alto Franklin 180 view of this majestic waterway peppered with islands flanked by verdant rolling hills. To the north rests the renowned peak of Sleeping Beauty and the beguiling Tasmanian sky above. Alto is a beautiful place to create the next chapter of your story, be it connecting with the one you love, much-needed time with the family or a place to celebrate.

Experience the luxury that is ‘Alto Franklin’ – your premier accommodation offering.

Weddings and Events

Alto is such a visually spectacular location for a truly memorable wedding, elopement or celebration. There are multiple locations to choose from that offer glorious and picturesque vistas to make your special day ‘a day to remember’!

Our signature location is the viewing platform which is 20m long and 7m high – offering 360 views, stretching from Sleeping Beauty all the way down towards the southern ocean.

There is also a large grassed platform skirted by a ha=ha wall and a sunken dolerite firepit which again offers beautiful views. Our local wedge-tail eagles are sure to make their daily appearance, and of course, our resident Highland cows are always keen to be in a photographic backdrop. The options are endless just talk to Louella about how Alto can make your celebration a masterpiece.

Elopements, micro-weddings and events attract additional fees and require a minimum night stay.
