Blenhiem Inn, Evandale Tasmania

Blenheim, a Coaching Inn built in 1826, is one of the finest examples of a Georgian Inn within Australia. This delightful building has a slate hipped roof and projecting eaves. The five-bay front facade has a corniced portico with stone entablature supported on four Tuscan columns.

An assembly room upstairs was used for concerts, dancing, and a meeting room for the Masonic Lodge and other groups. Outbuildings included a brew house, stables, blacksmiths shop, cottage and loose boxes.

You can stay at The Blenhiem Inn as they have one guest room, Victoria the owner is also an antique dealer. Contact The Blenhiem Inn on 03 639 18171 as they have no computer. Tasmania is replete with wonderful Georgian buildings to explore. I'd recommend a Tasmanian trip in winter as the freezing weather & smell of woodsmoke only adds to the atmosphere of these lovely buildings.
