Textures of Woolmers, Longford, TASMANIA by 


Woolmers Estate, (Thomas Archer – the settler circa 1817-1850), is a unique and fascinating reflection of colonial life in Tasmania, and is one of the most historically significant heritage properties in Australia. Today Woolmers Estate continues to display colonial life, preserved and maintained in an original and authentic setting. I spent a night there in one of the restored boutique cottages, convict-built in 1840. What a privilege! A little spooky though I have to admit!

    I like the flaking render with the brick work. Both Woolmers and Brickendon a great places to visit. A group of us from the camera club I am a member of are going to stay at Woolmers as well in early May and make a longer visit to Brickendon

  • I loved it there Ian! Unfortunately it was 5pm when we found it, so access to the rose garden was denied. They close at that time, and in the morning, it was rush rush rush back to Launceston for our flight. I would have liked another day there. Maybe next time! :-))

    great textures, rob! i think I likr the portrait version even better – it’s like a waterfall of textures!

  • I’m with you there too Nadine! Actually I’m a bit disappointed how they look up here. They’re so much more detailed on my ‘putor screen. I’m actually thinking seriously of having these printed and framed. I just love them! Thank you so much for the comment my friend. xx

    Hi Magee, It’s surprising how an uninteresting, everyday subject can become a fabulous piece of art! Most people would passed this wall a hundred times and not look twice, but to others, such places open up a whole new visual world! I really like what you saw and captured, love the different textures and colours and patterns …. nicely seen and captured my friend!! ;))

  • Oh John!! I nearly fell over myself when we arrived. The whole property is filled with this kind of viewing. I was like a kid in a candy store. Thank you my friend, for such a wonderful comment. :-))
