Joe Lyons Cottage

Step back in time

Stanley’s main street is treasure trove of beautifully restored 19th homes, and Lyons Cottage is no exception. The tiny workers cottage was the birthplace of Joseph Lyons, Premier of Tasmania from 1923 to 1928. ‘Honest Joe’ went on to become the state’s first, and only, Australian Prime Minister, leading the country from 1932 until his death in 1939. 

The historic cottage is preserved in the period of the late 1800s. An intriguing display showcases his political life, alongside that of his equally celebrated wife – Dame Enid Lyons. A stay in Stanley most certainly commands a visit.
