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.

It is hard to imagine a place that captures the spirit of an era more, even in Tasmania where colonial history is often very much still available. The grounds, buildings and, especially, the furnishings and fittings of this remarkable homestead really do bring the Archer legacy to life in stunning fashion. There is no doubt that those with means certainly... More

We had actually driven past the road to this place because the signage on the highway was not particularly standoutish, so chucked a U turn & went back. & am very glad we did. The entry price was negligible & we self guided ourselves, this way you don't get to see the house interiors which I regretted not doing however... More

The house that the Archers lived in during the 1800's is amazing. The grounds were a little bit sad as the roses had lost most of their petals and more work needed doing within the gardens,... as in weeding and deadheading Etc.

We walked straight into the estate and joined the Woolmers estate tour, which I highly recommend. Katrina, our tour guide is part of the Archers family and is enthusiastic in telling the stories of her ancestors. She is very thorough, informative and friendly! The Woolmers Estate is well preserved and it's rare to see such a historic estate to be... More

We did not visit the estate but stopped by for a light lunch. They have a small menu of good, homemade fare, and a wonderful view of the grounds from the small restaurant. A great place to stop for lunch on the trail between Swansea and Launceston.

This property had the wow factor for my husband and I when we visited this week. We felt very privileged to be able to take part in a tour of the house which contains 6 generations of collections and belongings. All that was missing in the rooms was those who lived there. Absolutely amazing.
