The City of Clarence

Clarence Local Govt. Area
Clarence Local Govt. Area

The City of Clarence is a city and local government area in Tasmania, Australia.

Being on the eastern shore of the Derwent River, Clarence is located opposite to Hobart and Glenorchy, both of which are located on the western shore.

There are more than thirty suburbs with the city of Clarence. Many have been named after the first fine house that was built in the area (Bellerive, Lindisfarne, Montagu Bay, Geilston Bay, and Rosny), others are named for geographical features (Flagstaff Gully, Mount Rumney, and Roches Beach).

Some, such as Bellerive, Lindisfarne and Richmond first developed as isolated villages, and others, such as Mornington and Warrane developed through public housing programmes.[25]

Suburbs such as Bellerive, Lindisfarne, Montagu Bay, Mornington, Rosny and Warrane all expanded dramatically throughout the 1950s and 1960s, and for many parts of the city electricity supply only arrived in the 1950s, and sealed roads, mains water, and sewage only began to be provided in the 1960s.[9]

Bellerive is a suburb of the City of Clarence, part of the greater Hobart area, Tasmania, Australia.
It stretches from Kangaroo Bay where it borders Rosny Park, around the curved shoreline of Bellerive Esplanade to Kangaroo Bluff, then down to Bellerive Beach and east to Second Bluff, where Bellerive borders Howrah.
To the north Bellerive is bordered by the small foothills of Waverly Flora Park.

  • Bellerive was first settled in the 1820s, and at that time was known as "Kangaroo Point", for the large numbers Kangaroos that would be seen on the shore.
  • Even before this time a ferryman regularly crossed the Derwent, coming ashore in the Bellerive area.
  • Following the first settlers, the area expanded rapidly, with roads to the farming districts of Clarence Plains (Rokeby), Coal River (Richmond) and Hollow Tree (Cambridge) soon developing.

By the 1830s the name was changed to Bellerive (meaning "beautiful river bank") and the village had become the hub of eastern shore contact with Hobart, and several boats would cross between Bellerive and Sullivans Cove every day.
  • Early on, farming and slaughterhouses were the main businesses in the area.
  • In 1834 there were four known hotel/inn/taverns:
  • Clarence House (1835-1838), Golden Fleece Inn[2] (1823-1838),
  • Highlander (1835-1861) and the Plough (1835-1866).[3]
  • The Wheat Sheef (1838-1842) opened and closed during this time.
  • The Clarence Hotel, built in 1879, has long been both a local social centre and waiting point for ferry passengers.
  • The Bellerive Hotel existed according to licensing records between 1862-1865 and 1898-1901.
Old Bellerive Police Station and Watch House
Old Bellerive Police Station and Watch House

One of the oldest surviving buildings in Bellerive is the Old Police Station and Watch House.
  • The original Police Station was built in 1842 from local sandstone, much of the original structure still remains intact and contains an original cell. Later cells, made from weatherboards still survive as well.
  • The building has had various usages in it life including municipal council chambers, district library and the CIB headquarters, although it is currently used as a Community Arts Centre.
  • The Bellerive Primary School was also built in 1842.
  • The St Mark's Chapel, Bellerive an Anglican church was built in 1851 on the former site of the 1826 "Chapel of Ease".

The area around Bellerive Quay and the boardwalk has a quaint village feel, with many historical homes and buildings in the area, some of which date from the early 19th century.
  • The old Bellerive Post Office, which was built in 1897, now houses both the Sound Preservation Museum and the Genealogical Society of Tasmania. At the point of Kangaroo Bluff is the 19th century British fortress known as Kangaroo Battery (built 1885) which is now a public park.
  • From 2 May 1892 until 30 June 1926 the Bellerive-Sorell Railway had its terminus on a long jetty which extended into the Bay on reclaimed land which now makes up part of the boardwalk.

  • (Registered) Register of the National Estate
  • The farm complex was erected on land granted to Richard Morgan, a former convict transported on the first fleet who was re-settled from Nolfolk Island when its first settlement was closed.
  • The farmhouse and barn are historically significant as part of the early settlement of the Hobart area dating possibly from as early as 1807. The grouping of the buildings around a partially enclosed courtyard suggests a defensive complex at a time when farms in the area were frequently attacked by Aborigines.
  • The barn is similar to an English 'bothy', or animal shelter, built on a slope to facilitate drainage of animal wastes in a way that is rare in Australia, where winter foddering of stock was usually unnecessary.
  • A painted-stone farmhouse in the Georgian simplified classical style with ground and attic floors. There is a central front door with fanlight and two twelve-pane double-hung windows to the front and sides and a similar window in each side gable. The south wall is stuccoed. The roof is clad in corrugated iron and has two skylights at the rear.
    There is a rear skillion-roofed extension, linked to a hipped-roofed pavilion behind. Ruined stone walls of an outbuilding remain in the yard, linked by a stone wall to a rubble stone barn with dressed quoins and hipped, iron-clad roof.

15. Risdon Cove Settlement Site East Derwent Highway Risdon Vale, TAS, Australia

  • (Registered) Register of the National Estate
  • Risdon Cove is extremely significant to Tasmanian Aboriginal people. It is the site where almost one hundred men, women and children were massacred by soldiers and white settlers (accounts of numbers killed varies). The bodies of the dead were butchered and boiled down so that the bones could be stored in lime and sent to Sydney. When the survivors of the massacre returned to bury their dead the bodies were gone. Later in 1830, Governor Arther set up a committee to investigate the massacre. The event was seen as "The first act of a decided hostility ... by the British". Archaeological excavations have uncovered pre-historic Aboriginal sites at Risdon Cove.

The first European settlement of the area occurred as early as in 1808, just four years after the establishment of Hobart Town. Today its primary appeal is the historic St Matthews Church.

Rokeby takes its name from Rokeby House (built in 1840) which was named by George Stokell, a prominent builder and merchant, after the parish of Rokeby in the North Riding of Yorkshire in England. Rokeby is located on Clarence Plains which were named after a ship, the Duke of Clarence.
  • By 1866 there were 180 people living in the Rokeby area.
  • In the 1950s the road to Hobart was sealed. Previously it had been a dirt road.

On 7 February, 1967 - the day known as Black Tuesday - a 'bush fire' raged through the Rokeby district killing two men and burning historic houses, including Clarendon, Bayview, The Pines and the Congregational Chapel to the ground.

The Iron Pot
The Iron Pot

The Iron Pot Lighthouse, also known as the Derwent Lighthouse, is Tasmania’s oldest lighthouse, and the second oldest in Australia. The square tower was built in 1832. The 11-metre (36 ft)-tall tower has a range of 11 nautical miles (20 km; 13 mi).[3]

In 1832, a temporary light was built at Iron Pot by Lieut. Hill through the use of convict labour. It was a simple structure of timber, in form like a guillotine, three metres wide and fifteen metres high. It consisted of two spars and a cross beam at 40 feet to which the oil burner lantern was attached.
  • A lantern made in Hobart, was hauled by halyards to the top of the structure and held in position by ropes.
  • A small stone house was later erected to accommodate the keepers.
  • The light was installed as an experiment and Colonial Architect Lee Archer submitted a sketch for a permanent light and estimated a cost of 300 to 350 Pounds, but with convict labour it would be half that sum.
    • Archer's design took the form of a tower on a circular plan surmounted by a glass lantern under a dome shaped roof.
    • Work on the permanent tower proceeded and on 16 September, 1833, William Moriaty, the Port Officer advised that the permanent structure, built by RH Stabb and Bros. had been completed.
  • Two men had been appointed to maintain the lantern had to sleep in tents until some months later when the two room stone hut was built.
  • The lantern consisted of a ring containing nine burners with a reflector to each, this had to be raised and lowered every few hours to be refuelled
The Lighthouse, originally known as Iron Pot Lighthouse was renamed the Derwent Lighthouse in 1884.

  • The light was 21 metres above sea-level and could be seen fifteen miles from a ship's deck.
  • The keeper's quarters (two), built at the same time as the Lighthouse (1833), were burnt down c.1910 (personal communication Martin Davies, Parks and Wildlife - Tas).
Iron Pot Lighthouse
Iron Pot Lighthouse is significant for several reasons.
  • It was the first lighthouse built in Tasmania,
  • it is the second oldest lighthouse built in Australia,
  • it is the oldest original tower in Australia,
  • it was the first to utilise a locally made optic, and was
  • the first Australian lighthouse to use solar power.

Originally the Golden Fleece Inn, built about 1823. The pub in Victoria Esplanade operated until about 1880, when it was converted to a private house.
  • The Golden Fleece was a truly valuable and well-frequented premises consisting of two large, well-proportioned sitting rooms, bar, tap room, four bedrooms and other conveniences, with a large granary, together with a skeleton of a large weatherboard house with a good oven. Brick parting walls with an excellent garden fenced in.
  • The inn was a regular meeting place for travellers and settlers from the EasternSshore, who frequented the inns of Kangaroo Point , while waiting for the ferries heading to Hobart Town. A regular ferry passenger, and visitor to the Golden Fleece Inn, was Rev Robert Knopwood who recorded his visits in his diary in the 1820s. Kangaroo Point Court records also reveal constant activity around the once busy harbour port of Kangaroo Point, including this inn.

The Golden Fleece Inn operated as such until c 1880 when it was converted to a private residence and known as Belle Vue.
During the first half of the 20th century the building was occupied by former Clarence Councillor and farmer, Albert Free.
  • In the 1950s the building was renovated by new owners and English immigrants who tiled the original steep pitched roof and replaced the shingle roof with tiles. The large windows, still in the same space, were replaced with metal framed windows. During adaptation, the Oakes found several old coins under the floorboards, including a Spanish silver dollar, indicating its age.

  • In the original stone parsonage the fittings were cedar, and it contained four fine Italian marble mantels and fire surrounds. These disappeared after it fell into disuse. In the latter building, noted for its 'bow' windows, the maid climbed into her doorless room via a steep ladder.

Horse and Jockey Inn
Horse and Jockey Inn

First licensed in 1833, 100 years later the Inn became a General store and Post Office, and was being refurbished when burnt down in 1967.
Miss Norma Free was the postmistress at Rokeby for many years from the late 30s and she also operated the manual phone service.
There were no mail deliveries then. A horse drawn Horse and Jockey Inn bread cart delivered twice a week along the main road. There were no side deliveries. This was in the 1940s. Miss Free's father Ernie P. Free was the best known of the blacksmiths who had conducted the nearby business since well before Federation. He was a top wicket keeper who played for Rokeby and Tasmania.
