Worth visiting, good history of Artists from the region. Allow 1-2 hours. Staff are helpful with good knowledge. Combine the visit with walking tour of historic buildings in the area. Nice cafe in the gallery. Donation for entry.

Great timber furniture pieces. The nicest smelling shop I have been into. Well worth a visit just for the smell.

Very fine building with history and a small charge to see the first floor. Whilst Robyn was charming Trevor looked to be in a mood! The antiques and modern items were very fine and if I had lived closer than 23 hours flying time away I would have bought.

Being Good Friday, expected little to be open. We were delighted to discover 1842 gallery, owned and operated by Robyn and Trevor Jones. Robyn's walking tour of Launceston's wonderful unique heritage buildings was great, she has an obvious passion and consumate knowledge. This was followed by an exploration of the 1842 Gallery and building. I was treated to a unique... More

The walking tour with Robyn was very good indeed. It was informative and gave some really interesting perspectives about the history of Launceston. It opened up some history for me that I did not know. It was well worth the money. Back at the Gallery, the art was most interesting and very well presented.

Loved the experience. Robyn is a wonderful guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the walk. It was a bonus to see the beautiful timber creations and the photo and art gallery. Well worth a visit.

Robyn's tour of the local area and explanations of the building and locations was excellent. Gives you a good insight into the early days of Launceston. Thank you Robyn.

We spent two weeks driving around Tassie and this place is easily the best fine furniture studio in the state. It leaves everything else for dead. I'm not an amateur woodworker so I wasn't trying to take pics or measure the stuff, but I can understand why the guy wouldn't want you to do that. While we didn't buy anything... More
