Oak Lodge

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Oak Lodge is an historic house in the Georgian village of Richmond, South East Tasmania. Richmond is a 30-minute drive north-east of Hobart (27 km) and a 20-minute drive from the Hobart airport.
Built between 1831 and 1842, Oak Lodge is a fine two-storey Georgian home originally built as a gentleman’s town residence. The Lodge’s first owner was Henry Buscombe – one of south east Tasmania’s pioneering settlers and the brother of James Buscombe who built Richmond’s Prospect House.
Oak Lodge has been used as a rectory, school, and family home and was once the local doctor’s surgery – occupied by the town’s noted, American-born doctor, William Clark. The property is now home to the Coal River Valley Historical Society.
You can visit this National Trust-listed property to gain insight into early colonial life, explore the well-preserved rooms and stroll in the original nineteenth century garden. Oak Lodge is open daily (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Good Friday) from 11:30 until 15:30. Entry is $4 for adults, $1 for children. Entry is free to National Trust members.
