Markree House Museum and Garden is one of Hobart’s hidden treasures. Built in 1926 for Cecil and Ruth Baldwin, the intimate house and grounds reflect the influence of the Arts & Crafts Movement, with hand-finished details throughout. The house contains a rich archive of family heirlooms, including 1920s Tasmanian oak and blackwood furniture by local cabinet makers Coogan and Vallance & Co. Markree’s beautiful garden reveals the influence of leading Australian garden designer Edna Walling. Stop and smell the roses in bloom.
