The Australian Fly Fishing Museum is currently closed. Due to structural issues with the building housing the Australian Fly Fishing Museum, the museum will be temporarily closed and moved to a new venue on the site. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. For further information please call the Co-ordinator on 0447 393 899.

The Australian Fly Fishing Museum operates under the National Trust and a dedicated committee. It is housed in a cottage on the grounds of Clarendon on the South Esk River, about 15 minutes from Launceston airport in northern Tasmania. Clarendon House is Australia’s finest Georgian mansion.

The Museum will collect, care for, interpret, and display angling equipment, art and artifacts that explain the traditions and techniques of our sport. We will promote the values of fly fishing, especially respect for the habitats of fly-responsive fishes. We will provide a national gathering place for anglers. And we will conduct educational programs in fly casting, fly tying, fishing etiquette, angling history, river ecology and aquatic insects.
