Ratho Farm is a scenic 1 hour drive north of Hobart, on the edge of Bothwell village in Tasmania’s central highlands.


While Ratho Farm has been recognised since the 1970s as being home to Australia’s oldest golf course, the farm’s history goes far deeper


The Reids were a literary family, and kept very entertaining and personal accounts of their experiences in early Australia.


As at any farm, all the work, rest and play at Ratho Farm revolves around the Homestead.
