A must see when you visit Tasmania. A gorgeous house built in 1938 as well as most of the outbuildings, all set in a beautiful park. Owned by the National Trust and historically significant. When you enter the main house a guide will give you a comprehensive talk on the house and its history (included in the admission price). I... More

A wonderful visit , Thanks to the staff for a guided tour of this majestic Georgian Mansion. The authentic furniture added to the experience as well as the numerous out buildings. A National Trust building staffed by volunteers so it needs all the visitors it can get. Also very close to the historic town of Evendale.

This historical location is just a short drive off the C416 on the way to Launceston. It is well worth the effort to get there. This beautiful historical house is in the process of being restored. It was however the passion and effort displayed by the guides on site that truely made the experience come to life. Their knowledge of... More

Previously visited this beautiful house five years ago prior to restoration commencing. Visited again last week and the drawing room and dining room look fantastic. Great to see the National trust looking after the property. Entrance fees very cheap, so go and have a look. Remember your entrance fees help pay to restore these historic legends

Well worth the trip outside of Launceston to visit this large and grand house in Evandale. The home is well kept and the volunteer staff were very helpful with questions and details. Also worth a look are the outer buildings and the expansive garden at the site. A wonderful property.

This is very grand house and worth a visit. Unfortunately nothing is signed to let you know they are same with the artwork no nformation of who they are of which is a real shame as the house would have so much history with it.

The house had only recently opened after extensive repairs to the roof. Many rooms are bare or contain accumulated furniture. The house is being done up and give an indication of what life was like in the 1800s. A walk around the outbuildings is part of the experience.
