Home Hill

Tasmania’s only Prime Minister

Home Hill is a look into the family life of Tasmania’s only Prime Minister.

This fascinating timber house was home to Prime Minister Joseph Lyons and Dame Enid Lyons together with their 12 children.

Built by the Lyons’ in 1916, Home Hill was the heart of the family’s life although politics meant parents and children were often separated. The rich collection of personal material provides an unexpected insight into Australian political life and international relations during the momentous events of the mid twentieth century.
