The Barn, Schoolhouse Gallery and Cottage Museum are set in the landscaped grounds of the Rosny Farm.

Rosny Farm is a unique cultural centre in the City of Clarence. The site has important historical roots as a fine example of an early walled farmyard containing a beautiful heritage listed sandstone barn and farm cottage.

The historic Barn at the Rosny Farm underwent a program of redevelopment in 2006 transforming it into an exciting new visual and performing arts space. The Barn now plays host to recitals, concerts, exhibitions, lectures and workshops. The Barn redevelopment was made possible through the generosity of the Tasmanian Community Fund and the YMCA in partnership with Clarence City Council.

The Schoolhouse Gallery is the only public gallery on the eastern shore of Hobart and is a venue for exhibitions of contemporary and community art, and historical displays. See the events calendar for exhibition details or download an exhibition program.

The grounds and cottage have displays of the history and development of Rosny Farm.

Rosny Farm is open to the public at 11.00am to 5.00pm Wednesday to Sunday and closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and between Christmas and New Year. Guided tours can be arranged.

The Rosny Farm is located adjacent to the Eastlands Shopping Centre with access off Bligh Street and Rosny Hill Road, Rosny Park.
