Historic Evandale - Tasmania, Australia

Welcome to Evandale, Tasmania - a picturesque historical town in Northern Tasmania, Australia. Home to world-famous events such as The Glover Prize and The National Penny Farthing Championship, as well as our ever popular Sunday Markets - Evandale is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the warm Tasmanian hospitality. Just minutes down the road from Launceston Airport, Evandale offers accommodation with that lovely village atmosphere, and it's also cheaper than Launceston.

Evandale today is a National Trust classified Georgian village, popular with tourists for its unspoiled heritage buildings, notably St Andrews Church, the Uniting Church, with its classical belltower and Doric columns, Blenheim (1832) in High Street; Royal Oak (1840) and adjoining stables now Evandale Antiques, Clarendon Arms hotel (1847) and Fallgrove (1826) in Russell Street; Solomon House (1836), and the saddler's shop (1840) at the intersection of Russell Street and High Street.

Just down the road is Clarendon House - arguably one of Australia's greatest Georgian houses still standing today. It has formal gardens and grounds, a tree lined avenue, Italianate facade, restored early colonial outbuildings and is owned by the National Trust. The wealthy grazier and merchant James Cox (son of William Cox) had the house built in 1838.
