Windmill Hill Lodge, C1875 was built by the Green family and is located among some of Launceston's most gracious and stately properties in a National Trust Classified precinct.

The property was originally called ‘Windarra’and was a private home until 1939.  Since then it has been accommodation in several forms including a ladies boarding house and a convalescent home.

 It has been furnished in Victorian period style and walking through the grand old front door into the hallway is like stepping back in time. The house is kept as much as possible as a period property but as a Bed & Breakfast it also boasts all modern amenities.  All rooms have ensuites, refrigerators and tea and coffee making facilities. 

Several of our rooms are self catering which is handy for families and those who prefer to look after their own meals.

Our heritage rooms are spacious, airy and give one a feeling of living in the Victorian era.  Breakfast, both buffet and cooked, is served in our spacious dining room. We pride ourselves on the quality and variety of our breakfasts. We make all our own breads, jams, muffins, stewed fruits, yoghurt, creamed rice, bircher muesli, porridge and more daily.  In addition we offer freshly ground coffees, juices, cereals and fresh fruit.

Why not come and sample what we believe to be the freshest and best breakfast in Launceston.

B&B Accommodation


Windmill Hill is within easy walking distance of the centre of Launceston, a city of beautiful buildings, parks and many fine restaurants, cafés and bars.

While in the city go and visit City Park and see the troop of Japanese Snow Monkeys or Macaques.

A stay in Launceston is not complete without a visit to the Cataract Gorge with its wonderful walks and gardens.

Launceston is the hub of Northern Tasmania and therefore Windmill Hill Lodge is the ideal Bed & Breakfast in which to stay while touring the region.  Spend a day at Cradle Mountain which is an easy drive from Launceston, then on the next day drive to Ben Lomond for skiing and general playing around in the snow. 

A trip through some of Tasmania's finest wineries is a must while visiting Launceston.  Several companies offer bus tours, or if you chose, drive yourself.  You will always be welcome at the cellar door.
A tour down the Tamar Valley and on to the Pilot Station at Low Head established in 1805 provides hours of relaxing entertainment.  While at Low Head take the opportunity to see the penguins.
