Sunday 16th of November 2014,was a glorious day so with an early rise out of bed we set off to the Rose Festival at Woolmers Estate,Longford. Longford is located a short distance form Launceston on our main bass highway, a lot of signage on the highway so its easy to find. Woolmers Estate is a short distance throught the town... More

It’s a strange set up where they charge you $10 admission per person before being allowed to view items that you might buy. The items displayed are from Antique Shops, which you can visit and view products for free. Definitely was not the “antique fair” which was advertised, there were only 4 or 5 antique dealers, displaying some of their... More

Well worth a visit. The grounds and buildings are maintained meticulously. The rose garden is unbelievable with its archways, walkways and many plots with magnificent blooms showing their various colours.

Although the history and buildings on this Estate are fascinating our experience with the accommodation tainted our impression of the Estate. Winter is obviously not the best time to visit but one would not expect to have buildings closed and locked early when there are visitors still looking around. Didn't go into the home as we refused to pay extra... More

Family property, beautiful, working farm and B and B. Idyllic and beautiful. Wonderful restaurant with home made soups/scones and cream teas. Absolutely delish. Enjoyed the homestead tour with many treasures beautifully kept in a family for many years.

We went for the tour of the gardens and homestead. The rose gardens are extensive and lovely. The attendants are very pleasant and well informed. Beautiful views over the waterway and surrounding farms. Elegant and very interesting.

The aspect when you come up the drive to Woolmers is rather grand. You can almost imagine what it must have looked like during the 19th Century when the first Thomas Archer made it a viable estate. Sadly, once you get closer it turns out to be a "big ol' mess". Suffering from a lack of cohesive vision, the outbuildings... More

My family enjoyed visiting Woolmer at Easter. The lady who presented the guided tour of the house was very knowledgeable and even kept the kids interested. We all enjoyed poking around the other buildings and the gardens. Cafe did an excellent soup for lunch.

This is one of the best Rose Gardens you will see. We stayed in a 1840's settlers cottage for 3 nights ! The atmosphere was great & very comfortable ! The convict walk was a lovely way to spend a Sunday Afternoon ! The cafe was full of character & did a great morning & afternoon teas & light lunches.

I went to Woolmers and did the guided tour of the house. The guided tour was good, but not great. Honestly, I find listening to individual stories of peoples lives less interesting and would rather the tour focus on how our life in the 21st century differs from life 150 years ago. Whereas this tour really focused on some stories... More
