Time stands still at Woolmers  Estate, wander around and soak up the essence of 19th century Tasmanian life on a once working farm estate. Explore the many convict built outbuildings that still remain on the property such as, The Wool and Apple Packing Sheds, Coach House and Farm Stables, Blacksmiths and Settlers Cottages accommodation

Self Contained Accommodation

Woolmers Estate is listed on the World Heritage List of 11 Australian convict sites, along with other sites such as Port Arthur and the Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney. Unlike these sites you are welcome to sleep where our ancestors slept and to experience first-hand the places where our history was made.  We have taken six of our historic cottages and turned them into 3 ½ star quality accommodation while keeping the authentic feel of the 1840s convict era.

The cottages were convict built in the 1840s and sleep from two to six people comfortably. When the estate was working they were home to the trades people  and have been restored sympathetically. Their uniqueness, overlooking the meandering Macquarie River, treed farming land and the misty mountain background creates a unique experience for visitors.  Currently our cottage rates start from $145.00 per cottage per night (maximum of 2 adults).
