Directions to Entally Estate
Entally Estate has one of the finest historic homes and associated buildings in Tasmania. Found at Hadspen, only 15m drive from Launceston it also has magnificent gardens and a vineyard.
The Estate consists of the grand homestead of Entally House, gardens and trees, stables, chapel, coach house, conservatory and other historic artefacts. The lavish furnishings reflect those possessed by the well-off of the era. The paintings and portraits include works by John Glover.
Entally House was built in 1819 by Thomas Haydock Reibey, the eldest son of Mary and Thomas Reibey. Mary was transported to Australia as a convict when only 13 years old. She went on to become one of Australia's most successful pioneers and businesswomen. Mary, who is pictured on Australia's $20 note, obtained the grant of 300 acres of land upon which Thomas was to settle and build the homestead and outbuildings.
In 1948 Entally House was recognised and reserved as a historic site.
Most of the original house was built with the use of convict labour. Thomas Reibey did alterations to the original house, adding a second storey. The rear part of the present day building was the original Entally and still has iron bars to repel bushrangers.
The gardens of Entally House were established more than 150 years ago and its original outlay still survives today. Entally House and its grounds are managed by Tasmania Parks & Wildlife Service and is available for groups to use for special events such as weddings.
Devonshire Teas are available.
Admission fee applies.
