Bed and Breakfast

Ormiston House is a federation mansion on the shores of Macquarie Harbour at Strahan, Tasmania.
Set amid more than half a hectare of landscaped gardens, with views over the harbour, it offers warm friendly hospitality and elegant accommodation; five splendid faithfully restored ensuite bedrooms.
Ormiston House is regarded as one of the finest examples of Federation architecture in Australia, built in 1899 by Frederick Ormiston Henry, Strahan’s founding father.
At Ormiston House you can relive the grandeur of a bygone era, it’s a beautiful example of stately Victorian living, resplendent with antiques, ornate ceiling roses and cornices, four-poster beds, deep claw-foot baths and cosy fireplaces. Fine period decorations and fabrics, together with lovely china, silverware and crystal add to the luxurious colonial atmosphere.
Relax and enjoy a port or liquor by a flickering fire in the lounge bar. Start your day with a continental breakfast, explore the history gallery, observation deck and gardens.
Strahan is the gateway to the World Heritage Area of the Gordon and Franklin Rivers on Tasmania’s west coast, and renowned for its breathtaking beauty and majestic scenery. You can choose from river cruises, scenic flights, bushwalks and fishing.
