A wonderful experience heading back nearly 2 centuries in this well kept and restored homestead with beautiful gardens and out sheds Well done, well preserved and well worth going there Its a bit wet at the moment. Check that the road and bridge is open.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour taken by Gaye. At first we were unsure why we had to be on a tour to see inside the house but as we went through we understood of the lengths taken to preserve the house. It is the oldest colonial estate still intact in the country and the view and property is spectacular! It... More

Four of us arrived too late in the day to undertake the last house tour of the day - at 2-30pm. This was disappointing as we knew the famous Heritage Rose garden would be in winter mode and not much to see.

Woolmers estate dates back to 1824 and has a beautiful rose garden and heritage buildings. It's truly an experience to stay in those heritage cottages! There is so much history associated with them. Loved every bit of our stay! Especially the woodfire heaters!

A wonderful place to stay. Cottage was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, the fire was a welcome addition. House and gardens closed but we were happy to just wander about, will definitely be back when the roses are in bloom! Very quiet and peaceful place to stay, close to a lot of attractive areas like Evandale and Launceston.

With no tours of the house operating in August they still wanted to charge a silly price to walk around the outside. No way would we pay that.

Magnificent property a definite place to return to & visit when open. Disappointed it was closed. Grounds, historical farm buildings look very well restored & make my maintained. So frustrated we did get to see this property inside the main house. Accomodation cottages looked charming.

The guided tour through the house was excellent. Unfortunately upstairs rooms were closed for safety reasons. The garage with its 1920 vehicle and odds and sods was very interesting. The rose garden and Tattersalls garden are well maintained and very enticing. Lots of lovely items in the shop too.

We spent hours here. The house tour by a family member was informative and interesting. The many buildings on this estate were fascinating to walk through.
