Tasmania's Appin Hall, a respite centre for children, has been listed for sale by former Australian rock singer Ronnie Burns and wife Maggie.

They are planning to move the Errima-based charity to Victoria after the decision was made for a 60-metre NBN tower to be built nearby.

"In the not too distant future the foundation will be working in reverse, flying Tassie families and youth camps to Victoria for holidays," he said.

Ronnie and Maggie paid $155,000 for the property in 1998 and have invited families from the mainland for respite and time out from the pressures of children with illness.

Set on 13.3 hectares, the French provincial style, self-sustainable village has been listed through Jo Eady at One Agency Launceston.

In 2013 Ronnie was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia for his significant service to the community, particularly to children recovering from illness and trauma, and the entertainment industry.
