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.

Guided house tours are available daily at 10am, 11am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 3.30pm. These take about 45 minutes. Self-guided tours may be embarked upon at any time.

The National Rose Garden displays all the recognised rose families, including early European and Chinese roses through to modern varieties.

The Servant's Kitchen is open from 11am-2pm for morning teas, lunches and afternoon teas.
