  • This National Heritage listed estate has a lot to offer for all ages. It offers a restaurant, guided homestead tours, self guided tours, a gift shop, large shady grounds and magnificent views of the Macquarie River not to mention the history, collections, artefacts, machinery, gardens and buildings. We spent close on two hours doing the self guided tour. Annexed to Woolmers Estate, is the National Rose Garden, spectacular in spring when the roses are in bloom. Easy to spend time in this formal rose garden with many different varieties on show. Incredible array of colour and aromas. I am no gardener but I did appreciate the spectacle and the work that has gone into this project. The Kitchen garden also invoked good memories of days gone by. A garden my father would have inspired to replicate.
  • New visitor's center is confronting and not what you would expect at a Trust Listed property. The amenaties were exceptional, and once inside the garden it was peaceful. The fragrance of the almost spent roses very pleasant. Views of the Rose garden out to the western Tiers beautiful. Also loved some of the sculptures throughout the gardens.
  • An AMAZing historical, story involving, convicts, high society and how they worked Together for survival and to build up wealth, through government funding and personal education, and Art and social standing
  • Just a fantastic spot you can't miss going in and having a look not allowed to take photos on the inside but well worth a stop
  • Beautful setup . Signage for cottages etc can be hard to find unless of course if you go with a guide.. Refreshment area and amenities very well done.
