On Valentine’s Day Val and I went and visited Woolmers Estate near Longford. We had an escorted tour of the main house, explored the grounds and outbuildings, had a picnic lunch and visited the National Rose Garden (more on the garden in tomorrow’s post).
Woolmers is one of the most significant heritage properties in Australia. This is a must-see destination if you visit Tasmania.
As per usual, I took a number of photos. Today’s images feature the entrance, main house, wool shed and Blacksmiths’ shop.
The estate was established by Thomas Archer 1st, in 1817 and concluded with the last descendant Thomas Archer 6th in 1994.
The main house has been totally preserved. It’s a time capsule of how life was in colonial days. It is truly a wonder to behold!
