Historic Site Tourist Spot
A sprawling stone mansion set among vividly colored gardens, Highfield Historic Site takes you back to a bygone era. Flowers, gravel paths, seaside views, and well-preserved historic constructions are the hallmarks of this idyllic location on Tasmania’s beautiful northwest coast. The house itself was built in the Regency style, and retains the geometric elegance of that particular brand of architecture.
