Our History

Frances and Louis Mamo were some of the pioneers of lavender growing and manufacture of lavender products in Tasmania, selling their products from market stalls throughout Tasmania in the late 1980s.

Initially Lavender House manufactured fragrant lavender gifts for the Tasmanian tourism market. As the business thrived Frances and Louis marketed their products throughout Australia and tourists from all over the world visited the Lavender House gardens and shop.

Lavender House was recognised for the excellence of its visitor experience, winning two Tasmanian Tourism Awards in 2005.

In 2008 A Tourism Development Grant from the Tasmanian Government assisted with the building of a bespoke manufacturing centre,  named THE PERFUMERY which was officially opened by Tasmania's Minister for Tourism on 8th December 2010. 

There are small plantings of  several different species and varieties of lavender, showing the different lavender growth habits, leaves, flowers, colours and fragrances in the gardens  surrounding the Perfumery which visitors  are welcome to view photograph.

The new owners of the business are currently redeveloping the Perfumery grounds and planting new fields of lavender and other fragrant plants. 

Lavender House PERFUMERY offers one of the most interesting and comprehensive lavender based experiences in Australia.
