If you love history, this is a must do. Beautifully maintained grounds, well kept homestead, which has been repaired beautifully. Great way to see what life for some people was like 200 years ago.

Highfield is a must visit for anyone fascinated by the history of the area, of Tasmania and in fact, of Australia. The displays remind us of the hardships of colonial times as well as informing about those who lived here before white settlers and how they suffered at the hands of the newcomers. The place has helpful staff, excellent maps and really good toilets. It's well worth a visit.

If you visit Stanley, you must add this to your ‘to do’ list. Very worth the visit, great photo opportunities and historically interesting and confronting.

A reasonable entry fee allows you to explore this beautiful and very old home. You are given a map and are able to explore at your own pace. There is a lot to see, including a cellar, and the gardens are also worth a look, as well as the outbuildings. The view of the Nut is stunning from here. There are very clean toilets in a building outside.......lovely ones.
