This is a great place to visit but give yourself plenty of time as there is lots to see in the house and farm buildings. The signage throughout was excellent and the major display panels give an excellent idea of life as it was in early colonial Tasmania.
Highfield House was the headquarters of the Van Diemen's Land Company and we particularly liked the stories of the people associated with the Company and the early development of the area. It provided a good basis to view the rest of the house and outbuildings.
The furnishings in the house were of excellent quality and very appropriate to the site.
The views from the garden over the Nut are quite something. This is an historic site not to be missed. There is plenty of parking and the gardens are beautifully looked after.
