Historic Highfield House receives roof revamp

Find out more

Work is underway to restore a slice of Tasmania's early colonial heritage with Stanley's Highfield House set to receive a new roof.

Weather permitting, this project is expected to take up to six weeks, with site preparations commencing today (22 March) and roofing works due to start on 27 March. 

The new roof will better shield the historic homestead from the elements and protect it from leaks and water damage.

While the site will remain open, visitors should note there will be some construction noise and visual impact with scaffolding erected as the roofers move around the building. Visitors are asked to comply with all signage and avoid any fenced-off areas. 

Highfield Historic Site, faithfully restored and conserved by Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service, offers visitors an outstanding insight into the early colonisation of Tasmania and the Van Dieman's Land Company.
