    Anglesea Barracks

    You are invited to visit Anglesea Barracks, Headquarters of the Australian Army, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Australian Airforce in Tasmania. It is the oldest Australian military establishment still occupied by the Army, and can trace its history back to 1811, when Governor Macquarie determined that suitable accommodation be established for soldiers of the British Army stationed in Hobart Town, on a prominent location, since known as Barracks Hill.

    Anglesea Barracks remained as Headquarters for the British Army in Tasmania until the departure of the last forces in 1870. Responsibility for the barracks transferred from Tasmania to the new Federal Government at Federation in 1901 and has remained so for the last 120 years. Clearly, Anglesea Barracks has a long and rich connection with the era of British colonisation, the City of Hobart and Tasmania since the early days of European settlement and that tradition continues to this day.

    What’s on offer:

    • A guided tour of the Barracks buildings 

    • Accompanied tour of the Military Museum’s exhibitions

    • Opportunity to view the extensive uniform and Cameron Collection

    • Morning tea in the Barracks Workshop.

    Members $20 non-member guests $30 includes morning tea 

    PLEASE NOTE: Parking should be available in Davey Street and other streets near the barracks. There is limited parking available onsite for those who need it, but you will need to request this in advance: please email us with your car registration number.

    • 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (UTC+10:00)
    • Central Gallery, TMAG
    • 39

    You are invited to an event that explores mapiya lumi | around here, TMAG’s newly opened gallery for children. Andy Baird, TMAG Deputy Director, and Michael McLaughlin, Manager Public Programs and Learning, will offer up the insights and thinking behind the gallery’s creation and how it will impact on future generations.

    This major new offering for young visitors and their families brings to life the breadth of TMAG’s collection under an overarching theme of ‘little big home’. Child-centred, place-based, a social and civic space, it’s an interactive gallery that engages all the senses and helps ground our children in the uniqueness of Tasmania — our home. More than a dozen Tasmanian artists and craftspeople, designers, taxidermists, educators and generally great people have created the largest single permanent gallery change since the 2010 TMAG redevelopment.

    Whether or not there are small people in your life, this will be an enlightening look at museums best practice. While the gallery is for children, this event is tailored for adults. We hope that after seeing and hearing all about what's on offer, you will be inspired to bring your children and grandchildren along on other occasions to experience it for themselves.

    This is a FREE EVENT and you are welcome to bring along non-member friends. Please consider staying on for a cup of tea in the members' lounge after the talk and gallery tour.
