  • This is an interesting place to visit and you will learn a little more about the early colonial history and come away with more questions. The landscape is harsh and proved difficult to turn into...

  • Even a wild windy, wet day in Stanley seemed to only add to the nostalgia of Highfield House. Wonderful snapshot of Tasmanian history. Gorgeous grounds and beautiful historic house. Worth a visit.
  • Wow what an incredible insight into the beginnings of Tasmania. Great staff that are very knowledgeable. Not really recommend for children or teenagers as they may find it boring. Very interesting.
