After lunch, you will be taken up to Highfield House, a historic site, which offers a stunning example of early colonial architecture from the Regency Period (1811-1820). Built by convict labour for the chief agent of Van Diemen’s Land Company, it is a historically accurate vision of a gentleman’s home and farm in the 1830s. It sits on a hillside overlooking the lands the manager would have once controlled, with view across to Stanley, the Nut and the Bass Strait beyond. The house has been restored and its elegant Regency design, convict barracks, barns, stables and chapel surrounded by a large ornamental garden.
