Prospect House and Garden

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Prospect House and Garden is at Hamilton along the Rivers Run touring route, about a one-hour drive north of Hobart. Enjoy the one and a half acres of romantic colour-blended gardens, abundantly planted in classic designs and admire the elegant early-colonial architecture of the house with its mellow stone walls. Prospect House gardens demonstrate what can be created in a garden in a dry part of Australia.
There are panoramic views of the surrounding valleys, rolling hills and sometimes snow-capped mountains.
The live-in owners provide guided tours of the gardens for booked tour groups. Open daily 9.00 to 16.00 October to March (other times by arrangement).

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
