self contained cottages

 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 seven of our historic cottages and turned them into 3 ½ star quality accommodation while keeping the authentic feel of the 1840s convict era.  Staying in the unique self contained colonial accommodation overlooking the meandering Macquarie River in Tasmania, treed farming land and the misty mountain background creates a memorable experience for visitors. 


Our cottage rates start from $150.00 per cottage per night (maximum 2 adults).

The self contained accommodation includes:

  • Private self contained accommodation
  • Wood heaters set and ready to enjoy
  • Delightful cottage gardens
  • Fully equipped kitchens
  • Electric blankets provided
  • Efficient electric heaters
  • Non-smoking accommodation
  • Folding bed available upon request

Note: The revenue from the cottages makes an important contribution to the conservation maintenance of this historic and culturally important property.
