Quamby Estate, Launceston

Small & Intimate Lodge


Short description

This 1830s homestead is set across 150 sprawling acres of countryside in the Meander Valley’s gourmet touring region.


Recommended for:
Food & wine | Relaxation


Just a 25 minutes’ drive from Launceston Airport, Quamby Estate is nestled among rolling hills dotted with historic towns, farmland and extensive forests. The estate itself is accessed through a hawthorn-lined driveway that takes you over creeks, through an avenue of trees and past the golf course on your way to this idyllic homestead. One of the most delightful ways of seeing this part of the world is on a relaxed bike or walking tour that takes in the region’s beaches, gourmet restaurants, mountains and wineries.


Formerly the ancestral home of the first Tasmania-born Premier, Sir Richard Dry, it’s one of Tasmania’s most historically significant properties; its history is reflected in the Anglo-Indian architecture and period antiques dotted throughout the interiors. Rooms are large and luxurious, with marble or stone bathrooms, under floor heating, flat screen TVs and DVD players. Larger Deluxe and Superior Rooms feature a mini bar and tea/coffee facilities while the former also comes with a spa bath and work desk.


With an abundance of fresh ingredients on its doorstep, you won’t be surprised that Quamby Estate’s kitchen allows you to experience the best of Tasmania’s gourmet cuisine. After a day’s touring, test your new-found knowledge with treats such as local salmon, cheeses and fruits. Whether it’s a light lunch or country breakfast, your meals can be enjoyed in the atmospheric Homestead Dining Room or Club House Restaurant. For something a bit different, ask the staff about the gourmet picnic lunch that can be taken in a secluded area of the estate – perhaps under the mighty English oak tree.


If you’re staying on site, the homestead has a range of facilities that make the most of its setting. Play a round on one of Tasmania’s best golf courses or simply go for hike through the grounds. For a slower pace, retire to the library or sitting room and relax with a drink in the clubhouse. On the estate there’s also fishing opportunities, bikes to hire and sets to be won on the tennis court.
