Quamby Estate is located 25 minutes drive from Launceston airport by our complimentary airport transfer.
Quamby Estate is situated near the historic township of Hagley, the property can be reached either via the Bass Highway or Meander Valley Highway between Launceston and Deloraine.
Known as ‘Quamby Laneway’ and being 1.6 kilometres in length this road connects the Meander Valley Highway to the Quamby homestead.
You enter the estate along a hawthorn- lined driveway, level at first, then it dips, crossing a bridge over a creek. The roadway ascends through an avenue of trees – the tallest branches touching high above – until you come to a beautifully framed Tasmanian landscape and verdant green sloping lawns. You pass the golf course past some lakes then beneath a tall canopy of cottonwoods and English elms.
The homestead is eventually reached – set in acres of manicured lawns dominated by an ancient oak, two solitary sequoias, cottonwoods and an exceptional specimen tree – an English hornbeam. From this same vantage point you can survey Quamby’s endless views to the eastern and southern horizons. This laneway is very old and retains its status as a Reserve Road.
Quamby is only open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in June, July and August.
