We visited today and had a wonderful visit to the homestead and garden areas. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Entry was $25 per adult and represented good value. Allow 1 to 2 hours and take a free tour.

Completed in 1838, this three storey mansion was built in a range of styles, mostly with Georgian Influences. There is much beautiful furniture here, and the best part is that they welcome you to experience it first hand - you are allowed to touch, sit...More

This 'manor house' is described in some guide books as being akin to that which was pictured in 'Gone With the Wind'. It is a throwback to the age of country houses which dominated the countryside. There are good displays of furniture and (particularly) the...More

The house and grounds are lovely and the volunteers/staff are obviously passionate about the place. Your visit starts with a 10/15 min talk about the history and owners and then you can wander around yourself. It is great to be able to touch and sit...More

Mum and I drove from Hobart to Launceston a few days ago and decided we would go to Clarendon House on the way back - we checked their opening days and hours to ensure we wouldn’t miss it. This morning we left Launceston to come...More

This is an old house with a difference, You can open the cupboards and drawers and touch or sit on the furniture, very different to most stately old homes. It gives you a real sense of what it was like to live there in a...More

The Clarendon House was the first stop on our trip from Launceston to Hobart via the Heritage Highway and was by far the highlight of our road trip. The house is overwhelmingly lavish, the donated art and furniture really add to the feeling of walking...More
