Woolmers Estate offers colonial accommodation across six self-contained cottages in Longford, Tasmania.
Built in the 1840s, the cottages range from one to three bedrooms and can accommodate between two and six guests. Four Farm Workers Cottages have been designed to appeal to groups of friends travelling together. These cottages are in blocks of two with doors that can be opened to connect them. Each cottage has a wood heater and a self-contained kitchen. The cottages were once home to tradespeople on the estate.
Woolmers Estate is a significant example of a 19th-century rural farm settlement in Australia. Wander around the extensive grounds, colonial buildings and The Rose Garden. Soak up the atmosphere of a bygone era and take a guided tour of the main homestead. This splendid homestead has family collections, original furniture and memorabilia.
Located an easy 25-minute drive south-west of Launceston (24 km), the estate gives a unique insight into early colonial life.
