Having lived in Evandale for some time, I can thoroughly recommend a visit to Clarendon House by any visitor to the area. It is like taking a trip back in time into our history & heritage. A Heritage listed building only gets better as ongoing restoration continues.

This is an amazing old house from tassies and australias brief history. It is an ongoing restoration run by the National trust. The volunteers are excellent and the house is an interesting view into the riches of the 1800's. The gardens and outbuildings are great too. Defintely a lack of signage to get there which can hopefully be fixed in... More

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.

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
