We booked in here at the last moment and were allocated the most gorgeous little cottage. The cottages have been renovated and although they are not exactly as they would have been originally it's all pretty good. They come complete with everything that you could want. Fridge, washing machine, great fire place. Bedroom in our cottage was upstairs so not... More

While it was established by one of the brothers Woolmers is a stately house which has guided tours at set times. The place gives the impression the doors were locked when the last remaining relative died and it has remained as a time capsule portraying what life was like at the turn of the century. Grounds are lovely and there... More

Woolmers is fascinating in that everything is original - a fascinating journey over five generations. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a vast background on the family. House and grounds are really worth seeing.

This is the most amazing estate to visit. I have never been to a heritage estate where everything in it is from the same family from 1810 to 1994. Walking around the main house you are lead through the life of the house. There are even clothes still in the chest of drawers from the previous tenants and a 100... More

This is always a pleasant and Tasmanian convict experience. I've been here many times in different seasons. Early history in the buildings and grounds, beautiful gardens with exceptional roses, peaceful, rural views. The tour and gardens are the main attraction but the cafe is not to be missed. Food is hearty and tasty, service is clunky and friendly and the... More

Woolmers is an estate that was established using convict labour and which was owned by the same family for six generations. It has an interesting convict past, a stunning woolshed and farm buildings. It is additionally fascinating because the home which can be viewed by guided tours only is very much as it was when last lived in in the... More

This is a great heritage experience to visit this original farm house and out buildings from the convict assignment days. A world heritage significance experience. It also incorporates the National Rose garden that is beautifully presented.

Having driven by Woolmers many times thinking "we must go there sometime!" we eventually did drop in on a wet Monday. Perfect weather for sightseeing a heritage property - hardly anyone else there. Bob, our guide, was a natural. He obviously loves the place and was very knowledgable. He spoke as though it was the first tour he had given,... More

The tour of Woolmers Estate by a member of the Archer family brought this property to life. The preservation of the estate is a unique showcase of Tasmania's pastoral history and convict past. Even my husband became interested! However, The National Rose Garden was barely mentioned. Apart from a devoted group of volunteers and several staff who maintain the garden... More
