Part of Tasmania's World Heritage Listed Convict Sites, Woolmers Estate is Australia's finest example of a pioneer farm of the early 1800s. The Estate has a collection of buildings, antique cars, photographs, art and furniture. It displays a remarkable journey from the first Thomas Archer, who settled the property in 1817, to the present day. For six generations Thomas Archer's family descendants lived on the estate. They were known never to sell their possessions, thus creating a complete time capsule and a remarkable accidental collection of heritage treasures.
Guided house tours operate daily at 11.15am, 12.30pm, 2:00pm; plus extra tours in the summer period at 10.00am and 3.30pm. Self-guided tours can be taken at any time during the day.

At Woolmers is the The Rose Garden. In late spring through to autumn you have the opportunity to walk through history with thousands of roses, representing the historical development of the rose in the southern hemisphere.

Tasmanian Honey Company


Visit The Tasmanian Honey Company's gift shop and enjoy free tastings, in Perth, Northern Tasmania.
The Tasmanian Honey Company began in 1978 as the concept of Julian Wolfhagen, a beekeeper with a profound passion for Tasmania, its wild forests and the honey that they produce.
Today Julian employs more than a dozen staff and exports pure, beautifully packaged honey right around the world. The Tasmanian Honey Company's success has largely been built on a passion for, and a commitment to the production of wild and uncompromised leatherwood honey, which they like to think of as the distillate of the wilderness.
Julian was involved with bees as a child, however a re-acquaintance with bees and honey via a good bottle of mead shared around the fire on a cold winters night, planted an inspirational seed that was to grow into what is now the Tasmanian Honey Company. The business has thrived ever since.
Perth is a 17-minute drive (18 km) south of Launceston.
