Located just 7 km from Longford and 20 km from Launceston, Woolmer's Estate, together with the adjoining Brickenden Estate, is one of the 11 sites Australia-wide that comprise the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property. Adjacent to the property is Brickendon Estate which is also listed. Woolmer's Estate is significant for the use of convict labour through the assignment system. This system provided convicts for putting to work in return for food, clothing and shelter. According to records, in 1825 40 convicts were assigned to Thomas Archer. Convict-built buildings include the main residence, wool and apple packing sheds, coach house and stables. The Settler's Cottages Accommodation was built in the 1840's with convict labour, to house tradespeople. Seven of them are now available as unique colonial self-contained accommodation.
