Mathers Place

The City of Hobart provides Mathers House and Criterion House as places for activities and programs for a range of people, with a focus on older members of the community.

The houses provide a warm, welcoming, cheerful and safe environment along with a wide range of social, recreational, cultural and educational activities.

Criterion House comprises the Flower Room Co-operative, the Catholic Women’s League office and shop, Goodstart Early Learning Centre and the Nell Pascoe Room.

Low cost meals are provided each weekday at Mathers House and both facilities are available for hire.

All positive ageing activities are developed in consultation and partnership with individuals, community groups and organisations that have an interest in the health and wellbeing of older people.

Coordinators are employed to manage the two facilities, supported by a dedicated and talented group of volunteers.

Volunteers are a vital resource for the houses and new volunteers are always welcome to assist with a range of tasks such as cooking, food preparation, tutoring and greeting customers.

Tourists and visitors of all ages are welcome to attend the facilities
