Spreyton: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Home Hill


Now owned and operated by the National Trust, Home Hill was the family home of Tasmania's only Prime Minister, Joseph Lyons, his wife Dame Enid Lyons - the first woman elected to Australia's federal parliament - and their 12 children.
Built for the family in 1916, it became their haven from public life and remains largely as it was when Dame Enid last lived there in 1981.
Dame Enid's style is evident throughout the house, with an amazing array of wallpapers from the 1940s to the 1970s beneath classic pressed tin ceilings; and in the garden through the rock walls and paths, the pond and the garden rooms.
Every part of Home Hill houses a rich collection of the political and personal mementos of two people who dedicated their lives to public service and their family, providing an unexpected insight into Australian political life and international relations during the momentous events of the mid-twentieth century.
Situated only a five-minute drive from either the centre of Devonport or the Spirit of Tasmania dock, Home Hill is accessible by guided tour only.
Bookings recommended. Age 6 and under free. Child price is for age 7 to 16.
