We stayed 4 nights in Gardeners Cottage at Woolmers Estate. Remember this is a building built in the 1840's so it is not in pristine condition. Everything you need is supplied. This cottage did not have laundry facilities when we stayed. Gardeners cottage is located furthest away from the main building and has country views. As a guest you are... More

So do not expect Sheraton glitzy decor or Diwnton Abbey aristocratic styled rooms. Accomodations are in re-converted workers cottage, which had a pretty rough life in the good Old days, judging from a neighbouring one leftv untouched. Ours, set with the others in the magnificent secular compound, had been redecorated in a simple, comfortable, way. Downstairs has been enlarged with... More

A beautifully laid out estate that was last lived in 19 years ago and appears to be struggling for maintenance funding. We were charged $26 to walk around the estate ($37) for a guided tour that included seeing inside the house. The gardens were in a state of disrepair in our view and we were told after paying the money... More

A Friendly, interesting and knowledgable guides showed us around this amazing home. The homestead is so very much in tact and as it always was. The grounds and buildings are fascinating and the whole experience worth a couple of hours of wandering, reading and viewing. Our house guide was natural and knowledgeable and passionate about the story and history of... More

We arrived after hours, and the directions to our accomodation was clear. We were delightfully surprised with heritage listed accomodation with everything we needed for a most comfortable stay. You do need to bring your food and drinks, as there is no shop close by, though the cafe is open during the day. The staff were most helpful and friendly... More

It was fascinating to see into every day life of a family whose history carries across the history of Tasmania and who played such an important role in the shaping of Tassie. It tied in all the pieces of history. I strongly recommend doing the tour so you see inside the house, as this brings the past to life.

From around 1817, Woolmers Estate was continuously farmed by six generations of the Archer family in Tasmania. The interior of Woolmer’s Homestead is by guided tour only; very dark in the rooms and the guided tour is done by torchlight in most of the rooms. The Estate remains as it was after the passing of the last heir in 1994,... More
