Home Hill

1916 family homestead and gardens of an Australian Prime MInister

Home Hill was the family home of Australian Prime Minister Joseph Lyons, his wife Dame Enid Lyons (the first women elected to Australia’s federal parliament) and their 12 children.

Built for the family in 1916, the elegant homestead remains largely as it was when Dame Enid last lived there in 1981, complete with her original furnishings and memorabilia.

Gain an unexpected insight into the political and personal lives of two people who dedicated their lives to public service and their family, with one of the regular guided tours.

Home Hill is situation only 5 minutes drive from either the centre of Devonport or the Spirit of Tasmania dock.
