An outstanding example of a wonderfully preserved arts & crafts house & garden! Also excellent staff with extensive knowledge of the house but also it's context within the broader arts & crafts movement elsewhere in Australia & the UK. Built in 1926, what makes it...More

Interested in the past, we decided to visit the Markree House & Garden. The door was closed and there was a sign to go to the garden to see the clerk. The clerk was taking care of the garden. He immediately brought us inside this...More

If you visit Narryna Historic House in Battery Point you can get a double ticket to also visit this home further up the hill in Hampden Road. It's not open as often and it's taken us two trips to Hobart to finally get there but...More
