The Barn at Rosny Farm

The Barn at Rosny Farm is a multi-purpose, small capacity arts venue situated in the cultural hub of Hobart’s Eastern Shore.

The venue is contained within the walls of a c1818 stone barn which has been tastefully refurbished to retain its colonial aspect whilst catering to a broad range of arts based activities. Situated within the picturesque grounds of the Rosny Farm, which is also home to the Schoolhouse Gallery and Rosny Cottage, it has been described as, “The best acoustic venue in the Southern Hemisphere.” – Stefan Grossman.
