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

We visited it on a recommendation from a B &B owner regarding the Rosé Garden. We were lucky enough to arrive just as a tour of the old buildings was to start and it was fantastic. Congratulations to Robin Archer on his tour info. Unfortunately the rose garden was past its best, but still interesting.

Found this place by accident. It's a beautiful old estate with cottage accommodation. Lovely peaceful grounds with fantastic rose garden and small cafe with excellent food and a hamper service. Stayed two nights and had a tour of the house which was very interesting. Would highly recommend for visit only or for staying.

Visiting this house and grounds is a great day out. We included the guided tour of the house which was great, led by a very knowledgeable and passionate guide. The house was originally 'served' by convicts so gives another view of a convicts life in Australia. The grounds are also interesting, including the rose garden (probably best in November). Overall... More

We went for a couple of hours but could easily have stayed all day, taken a picnic and walked to the other World heritage listed property nearby which is a 50 min walk in each direction (we will do that next time as we will definitely return). Well worth the $20 tour fee per adult to look inside the homestead.... More

We need to have more places like this in our country. It is truly a living museum, where the last person has left and everything remains as it was, all those years ago. Especially loved the shearing shed.

This amazing 19th century home is very well preserved & presented. Judee, our guide was a mine of information about the people, place & history of the homestead. It was in the same family for 6 generations & has all their possessions as they were from 1839 till 1990. The rose garden is worth a visit too to see &... More
