This is a must see destination. You can wander around the grounds for as long as you like, but try to aim to arrive for a guided tour of the inside of the house. It is well worth it to understand the history of the family and see all the interesting artifacts, and also see the original house. Don't miss... More

The roses in the massive rose garden were unfortunately past their best. We are told that the best time to view them is in November. We did the self-guided tour of the grounds and felt that things were looking a little tired and neglected. The two-storey wool shed was impressive and we loved the collections of vintage wares and tools... More

We stayed Woolmers Estate for 3 nights. This estate is well located and come with magnificent rose gardens with full of charms. We stayed at a small house with 3 bed room, 1 bath, and 1 toilet. Fully equipped with a laundry and a dryer. Although this place is a nice place to stay, we found a few draw backs.... More

Tassie is full of historic houses but this one is unique in having stayed in the family for so long and not being run by the National Trust. Don't be cheap and skip the guide. If you do you will miss all the most interesting interior parts of the house. Our guide was part of the Archer family and gave... More

Definitely worth a visit if in the area. Lots of history which is explained on the house tour.The cafe was excellent for lunch, and we did a walk around the house garden and the rose garden after. The rose garden was fantastic, we were just there at the right time in November.

Visited the rose garden and wandered around the estate. Roses were a bit past their best but it was still very worthwhile. Interesting vegetable garden and stables. A lovely day out.

For $14 each we did a self guided tour of the gardens and farm/out buildings. We were so disappointed to find the garden full of weeds, including many weeds in the National Rose Garden. The buildings had none or very little information about them, most appeared to be a place to store the 'junk'. For instance the house stables had... More

Well worth a visit. An important piece of Australian history. A beautiful setting with spectacular rose garden. Do the guided tour to see behind the locked doors.

The National Rose Garden was simply gorgeous. Perfect time of year to visit as the roses were in full bloom and the scent divine!! $14 entrance fee and we could do our own "self guided" tour of the historical buildings (minus the lodge). We were able to walk around and explore otherwise to our hearts content which was great! With... More

This place is gorgeous. Well maintained and preserved. I loved that our tour guide is married to an Archer! It really added to the experience that the family are still involved.
