Glover Country covers an area of 4000ha, which includes the original land grants of Glover and his neighbour Robert Pitcairn of Nile Farm. The area is now listed by Heritage Tasmania as both a built and natural cultural site. The property includes Glover’s house and barn at Patterdale, as well as the house which Pitcairn built and named Nile Farm. Glover possibly chose this land due to its picturesque views in all directions, fertile valleys and rolling hills surrounding Nile River.
Glover Country allows you to walk and paint in Glover’s footsteps, experience the landscape he loved, enjoy local Tasmanian produce and learn about the history of a place so rich with culture and heritage.
Tours of the restored house and studio which john Glover built at Patterdale are available on a regular open day monthly or by arrangement for tour groups. A visit to Glover Country is ideally suited to artists or people who wish to immerse themselves in the landscapes in which Glover was once so entranced. Glover Country is the beautiful Tasmanian landscape where colonial artist John Glover once walked, lived and created his masterpieces. Just south of the charming town of Evandale Tasmania, lie the plains and hills referred to as “Glover Country”.
