One of Australia's finest examples of Federation architecture, this magnificent mansion overlooks Macquarie Harbour on the wonderful west coast of Tasmania.
Luxury accommodation with a difference.
By day the views are beautiful, surrounded by gracious old trees -magnolia grandiflora, Norwegian spruce, macrocarpa and English oak. The gardens are newly landscaped with rose gardens and clusters of azaleas, rhododendrons and camelias.
By night the house takes on a fairytale quality as the night sky takes on its dark purple hue and the lights around the house glow with warmth and hospitality. The restaurant comes to life and wonderful fresh Tasmanian produce receives the 5 star treatment for house and dinner guests. A delight for all the senses, Ormiston House is not only a house for all seasons but a house for all occasions. A holiday to Tasmania is not complete without a visit to Strahan and to Ormiston House.
The view from the 'widows walk' overlooks the gardens and Macquarie Harbour. The rich mirror like waters of the harbour reflect a deep, deep blue. These views beckon the visitor to cruise the Gordon River or fly over the magnificent scenery. This has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world.
After a big day of sightseeing or following your inspiring drive to the West Coast you will be in need of some sustenance. In winter a port by the fire, in summer a cool Tassie beer to quench your thirst. Whatever the time of year Mike will have your drink in the 'Port o' Call' at Ormiston House.
