Blown away by the effervescent service from a lady named SAM. Her appearance at our table was uplifting. Nothing was a trouble and she appeared to sincerely enjoy presenting food to our group. What an asset this woman is to Woolmers Estate. Well done SAM...More

Plenty of parking, a terrific large cafe, very clean toilets and a nice gift shop. The tour through this old pioneer homestead was excellent and very interesting and the gardens were lovely. We had a very nice morning here and would recommend a visit.

Lots of history with home still containing original family furniture; lovely new restaurant, plus beautiful rose gardens to wander through. The house tour was very interesting with many outbuildings to have a look at as well as read about the convicts and property owners.

While the house tour was interesting from the Archer point of view, it was extremely disappointing that you weren’t allowed to take any photos inside the houses. They push the books from the gift house claiming all the stuff inside the house had photos there...More

This is a good place to get a feel for an old convict built estate. You can tour through the House, cellars, outbuildings, etc. Be sure to go upstairs in the old shearing shed to see the graffiti convicts left on the walls. The guided...More

What I loved about this place is it’s not a traditional museum. It’s how this house was until 20 years ago. The Archer family is doing a fantastic job preserving the memory of the Thomas Archer who founded this place in the 1820s. Not for...More
