Read MoreShow Less
This early 1800s pioneer farm was continuously occupied by the same family for more than 175 years; for six generations, from 1817 until 1994, Thomas Archer family’s descendants called Woolmers Estate home.
Along with the family houses, a large array of historical buildings remain on the estate, including a blacksmith's shop, bakehouse and stables. There’s also a former chapel, pump house and gardener’s cottage. Wishing to share Woolmers Estate with the public, Thomas William Archer VI left the estate and its many contents to the Archer Historical Foundation Inc., now called the Woolmers Foundation Inc.
The Archer Family was known for holding onto their possessions, so along with the actual buildings, almost 200 years worth of collections remain. Visitors can see everything from art and furniture, to photographs and antique cars.
The National Rose Garden is also located at Woolmers Estate. Like a growing history lesson, it boasts more than 5,000 roses, including the earliest European and China roses, to roses from the 21st century.
Woolmers Estate is located 25 minutes from Launceston and about an hour from Devonport. Guided house tours are offered several times each day. Visitors can also take a self-guided tour any time during the day. Woolmers Estate is open Monday through Saturday, 9am to 4pm. It is closed on Sundays and public holidays.
