A fabulous stay!
Apr 2021 • Couples
We stayed 2 nights in the gardeners cottage and were surprised by how spacious it was! Such an amazing view in the morning to wake up to however it got cold at night so pack your warm clothes! The estate itself was beautiful and we enjoyed the house tour too.

Very disappointing
Dec 2020
We walked to Woolmers from Brickendon, as recommended. Once we got there it took us 30 mins to find the Visitors' Centre, to be told that the cafe wasn't operating (the web site said it was). There was virtually no signage, and no-one around to talk to, except at the Visitors' Centre

Historically significant, all originally furnished.
Dec 2020
Step six generations back in time. A wonderful day out against a backdrop of the National Rose Garden. Just 15 minutes from Launceston. The main house is as it was almost 200 years back, down to the minutest detail, table settings and decor-plus. Our tour (highly recommend taking the guided version) was led by a descendant of the Archer family, offering some captivating insights. Vintage vehicles, even mowers. Well worth quite a few hours.

Rose Festival
Nov 2020
We came for the Rose festival.
We easily filled 2 hours, wandering, eating and eventually buying a thing or 3.
It was well worth the trip up from Hobart.

A most historic experience
Mar 2020 • Couples
Enjoyed a very pleasant and delicious lunch in the Courtyard of the modern restaurant in the Grounds, then wondered through the stunning Rose Gardens, before taking the guided tour of the old Homestead. All in all, a truly special experience.

A Trip Back In History
Mar 2020
Having previously visited Brickendon Estate this was the obvious next visit as both estates were originally owned by brothers. It was interesting seeing the results of their different types of farming - Woolmers was mainly sheep grazing whereas Brickendon was more mixed with crops, sheep and cattle. It was obvious from the more substantial farm and convict buildings and grandiose Woolmers House that Woolmers Estate was the more profitable. We took the Convict Tour with Katrina, she was lots of fun and very knowledgeable. It is such a huge estate that we didn't have time to see it all so will have to return on our next trip to Longford to finish the self guided tour around the rest of the buildings and also todo the tour inside Woolmers House. The rose garden you pass through to get to the main estate was beautiful even though it was past it's best.

A highlight of our Tasmanian travels
Feb 2020
I highly recommend a visit to Woolmers Estate including a guided tour. The reception staff are friendly and professional and our guide Lorraine was knowledgeable and passionate. A fascinating piece of Tasmania history. The volunteers and staff do a wonderful job.

Needs more in convicts
Jan 2020 • Couples
Worthwhile doing the tour of the house, tours run 3 times a day and several more times in holidays, cost $22 each guide was very knowledgeable and there are some very interesting antiques in the house, you can’t get to see these unless you do the tour, they are in very good condition, but would have been nice to hear more about the convicts

I enjoyed this more than Port Arthur
Jan 2020 • Family
I thought it was especially good for seeing how 18th century farms were run with the big house and garden, the cottages of the staff and especially the woodshed, cider house and coach shed. I preferred it to Port Arthur but my 6 year old didn’t.
