Narryna House & Garden offers a delightful retreat from the modern world. Step back into a 19th century, enjoy the old fashioned charm and take in the lovely spring garden. Why not bring a picnic? Australia's first folk museum (opened 1957) offers an array of collections including Huon pine furniture, portraits, domestic tools and equipment and costumes, Markree is one hundred years on (Arts & Craft movement)and only 200 metres down the road!! Check both houses out for $16!! What a bargain.

We were hoping to see this place but unfortunately it is closed for renovations. It is an easy walk from the Salamanca area so will be an easy revisit during our next holiday in Hobart.

Well worth a visit if you are walking around battery point. Large home of Australian colonial architecture nice to see how people lived back then. A bit of a sad story how he lost every thing. Well worth a visit.

Like her sister-property Runnymede, Narryna is very well presented and look after by people who really love the property and its history. The afternoon tea was lovely, along with the presentation of historical art works and current watercolour artists.

Went with a group. A talk was held first on the history of the home, including the wallpaper that has been replaced wth what would have been there originally. Rooms are beautifully decorated. Well worth a visit if in Battery Point area or Hobart.

Another colonial home which offers a good insight into our past. Lots to see and read about. Make sure to go into the back courtyard.
