The Tasmanian National Trust Heritage list has been 'rescinded' by the State Government, so on these pages I have started to reconstruct it.

Huon Valley Council
(Macquarie Island not shown on map)

As part of the reorganisation of local government in Tasmania Esperance was amalgamated with Huon and Port Cygnet to form the new municipality of Huon Valley.
The Huon Valley Council is a local government area of Tasmania. It is the southernmost local government area in Australia.
  • It encompasses the town of Huonville, on the Huon River, some surrounding towns, and many protected areas and forestry plantations. The Tahune Airwalk is also in the area, located near the township of Geeveston.
  • In 1993 the Municipalities of Esperance, Huon and Port Cygnet were amalgamated to form the Huon Valley Council.
  • Remote subantarctic Macquarie Island, which is located some 1400 km southeast of Tasmania proper, was part of Esperance until then, and has been part of Huon Valley since then.
The municipality has eight townships and numerous rural suburbs.

Huon Valley Heritage

"There are many buildings that are recognised as being of significance from a State and local heritage perspective within the Huon Municipal area.
  • The Australian Heritage Places Inventory lists 165 sites and artefacts in the municipal area.
  • Of these, there are 124 buildings or artefacts and these are located in the following areas:"

History of the Huon Valley Area
Located on the Huon River 39 km southwest of Hobart, Huonville is a small but thriving community serving the surrounding apple, timber and hops industries. Although it is relatively small Huonville is recognised as the major centre in the Huon Valley.
  • The Huon River was first explored by the French Admiral, Bruni D'Entrecasteaux, who named it, a nearby island, a soft pine and the Kermandie River, after the commander of his support vessel, L'Esperance, Captain Huon de Kermadec.

  • The name of the Huon is derived from Jean-Michel Huon de Kermadec, an 18th-century French explorer who was 2nd in command to Antoine Bruni d'Entrecasteaux, who navigated the area.
  • The Huon Valley, Huonville, Huon River, Huon Pine, Port Huon, Glen Huon and the Electoral division of Huon are all named for him. The former Municipality of Esperance was named for his ship.[3]

  • As far as can be determined the local Aborigines didn't settle in the Huon Valley although it is true that when d'Entrecasteaux entered the river in 1792 his party did make contact with an Aboriginal girl Oura-Oura near the present site of Cygnet.

The establishment of the British settlement at Hobart Town in 1804 led to the exploration of the area by the botanist Robert Brown but he dismissed it as unsuitable for settlement because of poor soil. This did not stop the timber getters and whalers from camping in the area while searching for stands of timber and schools of whales.
  • It is thought that the first white man to settle permanently in the area was a 'bolter', an escaped convict, who was found by timber getters in early 1820s. The man, whose name was Martin, had built a primitive camp near Price's Creek.
  • Later, as settlement began along the banks of the river, Martin became absorbed into the local community. He owned two boats with the unusual names of the Fighting Pig and the Crooked Eye and was well regarded.

The first land grants in the district were made to John Price at the present site of Franklin in late 1834. He was followed by John Clark who, in 1836, took up land north of Price's Landing and the Kellaway family who settled on the opposite shore at Woodstock.

Lady Jane Franklin, the wife of Governor Sir John Franklin

Jane Franklin loved travel, climbing Mount Wellington, going with Sir John to the West Coast, exploring the mainland and New Zealand. Surely some local women admired this independent lifestyle, rare for woman at the time; and when feminism took off in the 1970s, she became an icon.

Jane gave her husband credit for any success, but most of the Franklins’ activities were due to her, especially the organisation which made them actually happen. Sir John’s major scheme was establishing the Hobart regatta.

The Franklins were shocked at the lack of cultural institutions and the indifference of early colonists. Jane was an exceptionally resourceful and talented woman who envisaged and brought about the erection of a classical building along the lines of a Greek temple… to ensure the continuance of cultural aspirations of the future colony. When completed the Museum contained sculptures, books and pictures.

The Franklins left behind an improved cultural milieu. To encourage learning and improvement they founded the Tasmanian Natural History Society (later the Royal Society) and brought out a scientific journal; they encouraged education, both government and a short-lived Anglican secondary school; and Lady Franklin built a small classical temple surrounded by a native plant garden, supported the idea of a museum and generally encouraged scientific and literary pursuits. They founded the Hobart regatta and Lady Franklin established a settlement in the Huon. Her interest in the fate of the Aborigines led her to adopt an Aboriginal girl, Mathinna.

From the Australian Dictionary of Biography, “in 1839 Lady Franklin bought 130 acres (53 ha) of land near Hobart Town for a botanical garden, to which she gave the name Ancanthe. Here a museum of natural history was built for her, on the model of a Greek temple, and to it the collections she had been forming in Government House were removed. They and the accompanying library were dispersed in 1853” and the little temple was left to become a packing shed for apples. It wasn’t until a century later that it finally became an art gallery.
  • In 1839 Lady Franklin bought John Price's land and divided it into 50 and 100 acre blocks which she had cleared and sold to poor, free settlers.
  • She purchased 640 acres from John Price at Price's Creek.
  • Price was a particularly nasty piece of work who had been the Muster Master of convicts in Hobart and the Commandant of Norfolk Island from 1846-1853. He was so intensely disliked that in 1857 he was murdered by convicts in Victoria. No fewer than 15 convicts attacked him and seven of them were hanged for the crime.
  • Lady Franklin had a vision of the kind of settlement she wanted to create in the Huon Valley and was prepared to back her commitment with financial assistance. She did much to help the settlers including, as she mentioned in a letter to her sister in England, giving one family a milk goat and the next year buying it back because they were in such bad straits.
The district began to develop in the 1840s and 1850s when both apples and hops were grown with some success.[1]

  • St Johns Church has important associations with the early social and religious history of the Huon community. Early worship in the Franklin district was conducted in a small timber church, dedicated to St Mary, erected c1840, on land given by Lady Franklin. On 13 June 1855,
  • Archdeacon Davies wrote to Bishop Nixon, emphasizing the urgent need for a new church in the growing township. Nixon sought assistance from the government, under the provision of the Church Act, 1837. The government had already committed its budgeted funds, however, and the request for government assistance appears to have lapsed.
  • Following the ordination and appointment of the Reverend Thomas Stanfield, sufficient funds were raised publicly, and the foundation stone of the new building was laid on 9 February 1863 by Archdeacon Davies. Henry Hunter was appointed architect, and his original design included a nave, chancel, tower and spire. Only the nave and the base of the tower were completed initially. The contractor was John Rait, and the cost, 600 pounds.

Hope Island ruin gets some TLC
  • Works are under way at Hope Island to stabilise an historically important ruin that was part of the former Hope Island Probation Station, which operated from 1844-1847. Hope Island is the largest of the three small islands a short distance from Dover; the others being Faith and Charity.
  • The Hope Island Probation Station was an outstation of the Dover Probation Station. In 1847 there were 18 convicts on the island under an assistant superintendent; the men being primarily engaged in growing vegetables. Around 1848, shortly after abandonment of the probation station, the island was leased for private farming. By 1851 some of the buildings were already reported as falling in ruins.
  • The Assistant Superintendent’s Quarters is the most prominent of the ruins on the island. It was a basic Georgian style cottage built from local field stone bonded with the rich red clay of the island. It was originally whitewashed and had a timber shingled roof. PWS rangers, field officers and heritage staff have recently been working with a local stonemason to stabilise the building by rebuilding the collapsed western wall.

Australia's southernmost settlement

Southport  local tourist information sign
Southport local tourist information sign
Like most of the southwest coast Southport was first explored by Admiral Bruni D'Entrecasteaux in 1792 who named the bay 'Baie des Moules' (Mussel Bay).
Southport now
Southport now

Located 104 km southwest of Hobart, Southport can claim to be the southernmost settlement in Australia.
  • It can, however, hardly claim to be a settlement of much significance any more, a far cry from the early 1800's when it was Tasmania's second largest town and it was proposed as the capital of the colony.
A sleepy coastal village off the main road. In the early 1800s Southport was a convict station, bustling mill town and international port.
Being Tasmania's second largest town at that time, it was proposed as the capital of the colony. Today, it is just a nice quiet spot to relax, go swimming, sail the calm waters of Southport Bay, walk on the beach or a little fishing.
  • Where is it?: 104 km south west of Hobart, in the Huon Valley.
Southport township was founded on 16th February 1864 but the Southport Probation Station was built in 1841. To Southport there were sent 500 male convicts.
  • Southport was the southern most probation station built right on the shore a few miles north of the whaling settlement of Recherche Bay.
Southport probation station situated near the Southern entrance of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, a few miles North of Recherche Bay. Hobart 60 miles distant, communication by water, reach Hobart easily in fair winds in one day.

Originally opened for procuring timber, more recently reception of prisoners on primary probation. Station stands close to the shore, front parade rises supported by piles.

Buildings generally of very tolerable description - paving for four feet around the huts so as to throw water draining from the roof's clear of the buildings foundations.

Accommodation for about 500 men in the wards, and 30 in the separate apartments. Two mess rooms - one large and not in good repair, it is old and floor of loose earth. Cook house and bake house large and fair buildings made of wood with a brick wall around them.

There are three yards quite distinct, one laid with good gravel and two with sand.

Old huts built to accommodate 40 men each, front the station towards the sea, are very good, each hut quite distinct but sleeping places are narrow in some wards.

Separate Apartments are in 4 small yards. Doors are placed alternately in one yard, or the other opposite in a manner similar to Cascades Female Factory in Hobart. Built of brick with a high brickwall around the yards.
Cascades ward
Cascades ward
Cascade Solitary cell
Cascade Solitary cell

Solitary cells not very well ventilated, but secure, sidewalls carried forward to prevent communication between inmates. 30 additional cells nearly completed.

Hospital one large room, rather crowded and hot, eleven men were in it, Dispenser's room small.

Very good Chapel divided by partitions, one part for officers and three divisions for the three distinct classes of prisoners.

Books for circulating amongst men, kept in small room off chapel.
Attendance at school tolerable but no great improvement reported.

Resident Medical Officer visits the station at Port Esperance and an overseer who is Roman Catholic, reads prayers to men of his creed, about one third of all prisoners.

Clerk in the office is a passholder at sixpence a day and rations.
There are 361 prisoners on the station including 50-60 boys under twenty years, the youngest about 14 - these are kept in distinct gang from the men as much as possible during day and entirely separated at night from the men.

All older classes of convicts have been removed, now solely those from the 'John Soames' and 'Lord Auckland'. Men separated as much as possible being distributed in three classes. 2nd and 3rd are mixed at work but as those of 3rd class are under separate treatment, all classes are kept distinct at night and meal times.
Supply of all description of timber is inexhaustible. Iron tram roads are laid in different directions so conveyance of timber to water's edge is performed without any difficulty.

Abundant supply of shells for lime, and of good clay, also good stone for building and paving - all close at hand.
When Governor Dennison visited the station in April 1848 he wrote of
  • ‘inspecting 130 of the greatest scoundrels in the world; young villains from sixteen to twenty-five years of age, and of the most incorrigible habits; they are sent down here to be as far as possible from the settled parts of the island. Eighty of these are in separate cells, but they are most difficult to manage; and I was obliged to hold out threats of enforcing the most severe system of separate confinement; and, in three or four instances, to carry out my threats” (Varieties of Vice Regal Life p 90.)[3]
Two hundred years and several bushfires have left little of the former convict station or bustling mill town and international port taking timber to Europe.
  • For the past fifty years it has consisted of shacks for families from Hobart and south, and home for a couple of farmers and few fishermen. Only a handful of houses have survivied, the most notable being The Jetty House, a heritage listed building built in 1875.
  • In the nineteenth century Southport prospered as a port serving whalers, sealers and the local timber industry. There was a time when there were a number of substantial wharves and jetties dotted around the bay.
  • Today Southport's only industries are tourism and fishing.

  • Located on the eastern outskirts of the Southwest National Park, near the Ida Bay Railway, the Mystery Creek Caves track is a unique walking experience combining railroad and mining history with accessible and stimulating caving experiences.
  • Originally constructed as a tramway to facilitate a limestone quarry, the trail is mostly flat and easily managed by walkers of all levels.
  • The trail begins at the information shelter adjacent to the carpark and follows the muddy tramway track through spectacular dense forest for the first 1km. Keep an eye out of the many mining and rail relics that litter the edges of the trail as you meander your way through the forest.
    The quarry is soon reached and the trail continues along the lefthand side of the quarry face.


On September 28th 1791 two ships sailed from Brest. Significantly renamed Recherche and Esprance they represented the hopes and aspirations of an emerging new revolutionary order.
  • France was experiencing a time of great change. King Louis XVI and his family were no longer autocratic rulers and amore egalitarian Constituent Assembly was in place. Several years before Comte de La Prouse had led an expedition of exploration and scientific research into the Pacific. By 1791 he hadn't been heard of for three years not since sending dispatches home from Botany Bay.
  • In response to this an expedition was mounted under the command of Rear­ Admiral Bruni d'Entrecasteaux to discover the fate of La Prouse and to engage in scientific study in the South Pacific. He chose his close friend and fellow officer, Huon de Kermadec to command the Esprance.
  • Some of the best French scientists applied to join the Expedition, no expense was spared in outfitting the ships and every crew member was deliberately chosen to ensure a successful voyage. By and large most of the officers were Royalists and most of the scientists were Republicans, reflecting the current political trend in France.

    D'Entrecasteaux decided to make for the one safe harbour shown on the charts left by Captains Cook and Bligh, Adventure Bay in southern Van Diemen's Land.
  • Battered by unrelenting storms the two bedraggled vessels sighted the coast on Van Diemen's Land on the 21 st of April, 1792.
  • Due to a navigational error, 19 west instead of 19 East the ships found themselves outside the entrance to a large harbour. Concerned over unfavourable winds and nearby threatening reefs d'Entrecasteaux sent long boats ahead into the bay to do soundings while the two ships tacked for two hours across the entrance. At 4:50 the Admiral signaled 'anchors down' and the weary crew complied.
  • But where were they?
The next day the two ships were towed by their long boats into the northern arm of the bay just beyond the present Bennett's Point named by the Hydrographer, Beautemps-Beaupr, Port du Nord. So impressed by the beauty and tranquility of their surrounding the normally unemotional d'Entrecasteaux was moved to record in his journal

  • "...Nature in all her vigour, and yet in a state of decay, seems to offer to the imagination something more picturesque and more imposing than the sight of this same nature bedecked by the hand of civilised man.
  • "Wishing only to preserve her beauties we destroy her charm, we rob her of that power which is hers alone, the secret of preserving in eternal age eternal youth."
Over the next 26, days the Bay saw much activity. The ships were careened, timber was cut for repairs and the making of charcoal. The botanists Labillardire, Riche and Ventenat busily collected, catalogued and preserved hundreds of hitherto unknown flora and fauna including the Eucalyptus Globulus, Tasmanian Blue gum which later on became the state emblem.

Recherche Bay

A quiet, idyllic bay in the far south of Tasmania beyond the Huon Valley.
  • The original inhabitants of this area were the Aboriginal people known as the Lyluequonny. Their first encounter with Europeans was with the French, an amicable meeting which could be considered a ‘cultural exchange’. The French expeditions were focused on the scientific study of native flora, fauna, geology and the waterways of Van Diemen’s Land.
  • Recherche Bay itself, sheltered from the wildest weather, provided some safe harbour for the influx of early settlers, sealers and convicts. Early industries based initially on coal-mining and whaling became established.
  • Coal was sent to Hobart and the oil produced from whales helped the emerging colony with lighting, cooking and the manufacture of soaps and corsets. The bronze whale sculpture that presently sits at Adams Point pays homage to this history.
With such an intense boating industry, and with early access to this area only possible by sea, there was demand for ship-building and local timber-milling was established.
  • One of the features of this somewhat sheltered coastline was that tall forest eucalypts grew close to the shore, making for convenient, though still dangerous, harvesting. Timber was not only required for the local collieries and boat building, but for housing and domestic needs.
  • A number of mills were established around the bay over time, with one mill at Cockle Creek run by women during World War II. Tram tracks spread out into the bush to retrieve logs from the hinterland.
  • In Recherche Bay during the early part of the 20th century, it appears that the men fished, farmed, worked the mines, the timber mills & were grateful for road making work when it was offered. Some 3000 people lived in the area at the time.

  • Recherche Bay is a natural area in the south-eastern corner of Tasmania.
  • The terrestrial area is dominated by mixed aged tall and dry Eucalyptus obliqua forest with a history of forest harvesting. Beneath the variable E. obliqua canopy, the understorey consists of a sedge and shrub layer and is made up of species typical of the surrounding area.
  • The ground layer consists mainly of cutting grass (Gahnia grandis) and bracken (Pteridium aquilinum) whilst the shrub layer contains species such as prickly moses (Acacia verticillata) and silver banksia (B. marginata). Parts of the area include reasonably extensive coastal wetlands dominated by sedges and other plants.

  • In 1792 D`Entrecasteaux`s expedition sailed up the channel, now bearing his name, charting the coastline & naming features.
  • He named the large bay at the top of the channel, North West Bay. The expedition anchored there to collect fresh water. Many aborigines were observed in the area.
From a scientific perspective, the northern peninsula of Recherche Bay was the site, in 1792, of the first deliberate scientific experiment in Australia. This was a geomagnetic measurement undertaken by French naval officer Elisabeth Paul Edouard de Rossel, showing that goemagneticism varied with latitude. It was an experiment of international significance.
  • The Tasmanian Aboriginal community has a strong association with the place that is of outstanding significance to the nation because Recherche Bay is associated with the best documentary evidence of Aboriginal culture before European settlement.
People, who by their association with the place, cause the place to have national heritage value, are two members of the 1792 and 1793 French expedition –Labillardiere, botanist, and Rossel, in modern terms, a ‘geoscientist’.
  • There are a three small settlements on Recherche Bay Catamaran, Recherche Bay and Cockle Creek. These are the most southern communities in Australia.
  • A signpost at Cockle Creek marks the most southerly point in Australia accessible by motor vehicle.
  • The southern tip of Tasmania, Australia s southern extremity, which marks the beginning of the South West Walk, is just an hour s walk away.
  • Where is it?: 80 km south of Southport.
The bay was the first landing place of French explorer Bruny D'Entrecasteaux who came ashore here for water and stayed for a number of weeks in 1792 to rest his crew and complete maintenance on his ships.

  • Coal found on North Point by D Entrecasteaux was mined by a team of 43 convicts from 1841 to 1848.
  • Mining was abandoned because of seepage in its two shafts due to the mine being so close to sea level.

  • Between the late 1830s and early 1840s, four shore-based whaling stations operated in the bays immediately to the north of Southport Bluff. The remains of three of these stations have been identified.

  • Captain William Fisher was born in Hobart 1813, son of an emancipated convict. He soon acquired the brig Calypso (157 tons) & pursued whaling and other interests, not always within the law.
  • An 1869 news report claimed he had 12,000 antiscorbutic cabbages growing.
  • He is remembered by Fisher‘s Point at the southern end of Recherche Bay (where the road ends) marked by a life sized bronze whale sculpture nearby.

  • It is the site of the first botanical collecting in Tasmania by Bruni D'Entrecasteaux's 1792 expedition, and all the plants described then are still to be found in the Southport area, including the Tasmanian bluegum Eucalyptus globulus, the floral emblem of Tasmania.
    • In the autumn of 1792 a pair of storm-battered French ships, their crews weatherbeaten and tired, dropped grateful anchor in waters off Tasmania’s south-east coast.
    • The peaceful waterway was later named D’Entrecasteaux Channel and the kidney-shaped bay they chose for their rest and repair became known as Recherche Bay.

    • The botanists Labillardire, Riche and Ventenat busily collected, catalogued and preserved hundreds of hitherto unknown flora and fauna including the Eucalyptus Globulus, Tasmanian Blue gum which later on became the state emblem.
    • Hydrographers Beautemps-Beaupr, Willaumez and others set of in the long boats to chart previously unknown parts of the coast. Their maps were used for generations by other mariners.
    • Rossel set up an observatory on what is now Bennett's Point and discovered Geo-magnetism od great significance to navigational science. An event commemorated by the unveiling of a plaque on the site by the CSIRO during a seminar held in Hobart in 1992.
      "Under calm conditions the following morning both vessels were safely towed by invigorated oarsmen into the bay. They anchored in the northern sector, later termed the Port du Nord, or ‘little bay’, today the unimaginative Pig Sties Bay. They moored over 100 metres from the beach north of Bennetts Point; Recherche lay some 70 metres north of Espérance.

    Gazing at this pristine landscape, Labillardière voiced the ethos of noble nature: ‘We were filled with admiration at the sight of these ancient forests, in which the sound of the axe had never been heard.’
    • Turning his eyes towards the harbour, he exclaimed with exaggerated praise that ‘more than 100 vessels of the line might ride here with safety’.
  • D’Entrecasteaux felt equally emotional: ‘With every step, one encounters the beauties of unspoilt nature … trees reaching a very great height … are devoid of branches along the trunk, but crowned with an everlasting green foliage. Some of these trees seem as ancient as the world’.
  • Matthew Flinders paid him an unreserved compliment, when he praised the discovery of this harbour as ‘the most important discovery which has been made in [Tasmania] from the time of Tasman’.

Cockle Creek

Cockle Creek is a tiny settlement in Tasmania, the farthest point south one can drive in Australia,[1] 148 km from Hobart via the Huon Highway. It is located on Recherche Bay on the edge of the Southwest National Park, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.[1]
  • During the 24 days spent moored in the harbour, 200 men were set to work as ships and shore became a hive of activity. It was a welcome break from shipboard routine, although a busy one as most of the crews worked ashore. Before describing the scientific research, it is appropriate to note these various activities, many of which must have left archaeological traces on land or seabed.
    • The example of the preservation of the James Craig over a century later, is a reminder that archaeological evidence of this visit may be preserved in the mud and sand. D’Entrecasteaux provided testimony to the constitution of the seabed when they had difficulty in raising an anchor which was ‘too deeply buried in the mire’. ‘With this type of seafloor,’ he concluded, ‘where the anchors sink to the point of disappearing, it is necessary to raise the anchor frequently.’[4]

Southport Lagoon

Many Aboriginal people once lived in the area, as revealed in the observations of the earliest European expeditioners. While largely unrecorded, Aboriginal sites must still be present in the landscape. These are protected under the Aboriginal Relics Act 1975.
The history of the area is rich:
  • the French National Assembly Expedition of 1792 lead by D'Entrecasteaux used this area as a base for the scientific exploration of Recherche, the Huon, Channel, Derwent region and Bruny Island;
  • since then human occupation has principally associated with resource extraction including mining, forestry and whaling While little physical evidence remains to mark these early European activities, those that do exist have heritage value at the local, state and even national level.

Historic early shipwreck in a very scenic area. Flora diverse and some rare species, notably EPACRIS STUARTII.
  • The 14.4 hectare historic site is the site of a memorial to the convict ship George III which was wrecked on nearby rocks on its way to Port Arthur in 1835 with the loss of 133 lives. The memorial was erected on this site in 1839.
  • On the evening of 12 March 1835 the George III, a convict transportation vessel, enroute from Great Britain to the colony, struck a reef directly offshore from the conservation area. The ship quickly began to break up. Convicts were confined to the hold at gunpoint until the ship’s longboat was launched and taking its first load of occupants to the safety of the nearby shore.
    The resultant loss of life from this shipwreck means it still stands as Tasmania’s third worst maritime accident. None of the ship’s officers lost their lives, nor any soldiers. However 128 convicts, three children, the wife of a soldier and two crew members were drowned.

  • In 1839 a monument, in the form of an inscribed tomb, was placed on Southport Bluff to record the event. The monument still stands and its existence is the chief reason for the proclamation of the surrounding historic site. The main inscription on the tomb reads:
      • Near this place are interred the Remains of Many of the Sufferers who perished by the Wreck of the George the III, convict ship, which Vessel struck on a sunken rock near the Actaeon reef
      • On the night of the 12th April 1835 upon which melancholy occasion 134 human beings were drowned
      • This Tomb is Erected by the desire of His Excellency Colonel GEORGE ARTHUR, Lieut.-Governor
      • to mark that sad event, and is placed on this spot by the Major THOMAS RYAN, 50th Regiment
      • One of the Survivors on this Occasion
  • Southport Bluff, where the George III Historic Site and monument are located, is the only known locality for the endangered Tasmanian endemic heath species,Epacris stuartii (Keith 1996).

The Hastings Caves State Reserve offers visitors a variety of experiences, from relaxing in the warm waters of a thermal springs pool, walking in the rich forests of the reserve and, the unique experience of exploring Newdegate Cave.
Both the thermal pool and the trail which leads through the surrounding forests are accessible to wheelchair users.

Named after Sir Francis Newdegate, the Governor of Tasmania from 1917-1920, Newdegate Cave is the largest tourist cave in Australia which occurs in dolomite, rather than limestone.

Its richly decorated chambers began forming tens of millions of years ago. Don't miss the opportunity to take a tour of the cave with qualified Parks and Wildlife Service guides.
The Hastings Caves State Reserve forms part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

The 425 hectare Ida Bay State Reserve is managed for the protection of its historic, recreational and natural values.
  • A narrow gauge railway, built around 1920, and extensively upgraded in the 1940s is located within the State reserve. It runs along the southern shore of the Lune River estuary and terminates at Deephole Bay.
  • The railway was originally established to transport limestone from Ida Bay quarries to vessels berthed first within the Lune River Estuary, and later at Deephole Bay. The railway has, discontinuously since 1981, been operated under a lease agreement as a tourist attraction. There is access to Southport Lagoon and King George III monument via railway operation.
  • Aboriginal middens are present in the reserve. The area is the habitat for plant species with restricted distributions in Tasmania, CAESIA ALPINA (r2) and CALADENIA VULGARIS (r3).

Lying approximately 80km south of Hobart the 4,280 hectare Southport Lagoon Conservation Area possesses a wide diversity of significant natural, cultural and recreational values.
  • The area combines a rich history with a unique natural heritage. The area is the type locality for a large number of Tasmania’s unique native plants.
Southport Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary exhibits an unusual complex of forest, heath and sedgeland communities, and is in a relatively undisturbed state.
  • The Messmate (EUCALYPTUS OBLIQUA) forests that cover much of the land area of the Sanctuary have representative significance, and are also significant in that they extend to coastal sand dunes and rocky shores. This is highly unusual at the present time, although it was a common phenomenon in the past.
  • The heathland communities in the Sanctuary are particularly rich in species which are no longer found in other coastal regions. The Sanctuary provides important waterbird habitat and breeding ground for a large number of bird species, and is the only known location for a Tasmanian endemic heath species, EPACRIS STUARTII, considered vulnerable at both State and national levels.
  • The Sanctuary also provides protection for several plant species which have a restricted distribution in Tasmania: WESTRINGIA BREVIFOLIA, exocarpus SYRTICOLA, and CYATHODES ABIETINA. The latter two species are endemic to Tasmania. Southport Lagoon area was the collection site for the 1792 D'Entrecasteaux Expedition, and the area is therefore a botanical, zoological, geological and anthropological type locality for many Tasmanian specimens, and is an important scientific reference area.

N7. Macquarie Island Nature Reserve, Hobart, TAS

external image external image external image external image external image
Macquarie Island Nature Reserve is an area of very high biogeographic significance, being on the Antarctic Convergence, where the ranges of many Antarctic and more northerly species meet. As a result many species, for example the grey backed storm petrel, thin billed prion, rockhopper penguin and kelp gull, are at the northerly or southerly limit of their range. (Criterion A1)
  • Macquarie Island is an excellent example of a subantarctic island group with good examples of plant communities and landforms. Like other subantarctic island groups the marine flora and fauna have strong antarctic links and the terrestrial flora has Australian links. The fora and fauna of Macquarie Island is however unique. (Criteria D1 & B1)
The area provides valuable habitat for many species of marine mammals and birds in their important breeding, moulting or immature phases, as well as being home to a number of endemic bird species and an array of endemic invertebrates. Because of the harsh conditions on Macquarie Island, species diversity is low, but abundance is high, indicating the success with which those species have adapted to conditions on the island. (Criteria A2, A3 & B1)
  • Macquarie Island is unique in being the best preserved example of oceanic crust above the ocean surface, and, never having been part of a continental landmass, it provides the opportunity for study of the oceanic crust, and long distance dispersal mechanisms and implications. (Criteria A1, B1 & C1)
  • The value of Macquarie Island is enhanced by its remote location which has enabled it to retain its biological integrity, and function as a scientific reference point, having been visited by expeditions since the turn of the century, including those of Scott, Shackleton and Mawson, and having been the location of an ANARE Research Station since 1948. (Criteria H1, C1 & B1)

Maatsuyker Island is the second largest (after De Witt) of six islands in the Maatsuyker group.
  • The island is roughly triangular in shape and covers about 190 hectares, its highest point being approximately 280 metres above sea level. The island lies ten kilometres from the Tasmanian mainland.
  • Maatsuyker Island is part of the Western Tasmania Wilderness National Parks World Heritage Area, and is scenically spectacular, with jagged cliffs rising precipitously from the sea and jumbled rocks and boulders on the shoreline.
  • Several sea caves occur on the coast of the island. The smaller Walker Island lies to the north of Maatsuyker Island, and The Needles, a chain of pyramidal rocks 100 metres in height, lie to the south.
  • The latter are devoid of vegetation except a few plants of Bower Spinach (TETRAGONIA IMPLEXICOMA) and Pigface (CARPOBROTUS ROSSII) near their summits.
  • Walker Island is small (11 hectares) and steep-sided with severely stunted, wind-pruned vegetation. It provides breeding habitat for many species of birds.

N10. Port Cygnet Wildlife Sanctuary

Located on the north side of Huon Estuary, Port Cygnet Wildlife Sanctuary provides an important feeding and refuge area for many species of waders and waterbirds. It is especially important for the Black Swans for which the port is named.
  • Port Cygnet Conservation Area provides excellent waterfowl habitat for a range of waterbirds which breed, shelter and feed in the reserve.
  • The reserve is significant as a refuge area for numerous bird species including migratory birds such as Latham's snipe (Gallinago hardwickii), the Great egret (Egretta alba) and the Crested tern (Sterna bergii).
  • A striking and rare example of the phenomena associated with alkaline intrustive complex occurs on the western foreshore of Port Cygnet, near Regatta Point.
Port Cygnet Conservation Area occupies the northern-most inlet in Port Cygnet, immediately south of the township of Cygnet, 50 kilometres south-west of Hobart. The inlet provides habitat of extensive intertidal mudflats and shallow waters for a variety of waterbirds which feed, breed and shelter in the area, particularly Black Swan (CYGNUS ATRATUS).

  • Keep your eyes open for shell middens along the coast, where Palawa (Aboriginal people) have been living for at least 40,000 years. Be respectful: View but don't touch or walk over the easily damaged middens.
    • There are also several interpretive experiences in Southern Tasmania, designed to introduce visitors to Palawa heritage.

C3. Methodist Church (Former) Nicholls Rivulet Road, Nicholls Rivulet, TAS, Australia

external image
The former Methodist church at Nicholls Rivulet is one of only two surviving structures with direct associations with the Tasmanian Aboriginal race (the other being Dolly Dalrymple's cottage at Sherwood, near Latrobe) (G.1).

The building has very strong associations with its principal benefactor, Fanny Cochrane Smith (H.1).
History: early Methodist services in the district of Nicholls Rivulet (formerly Irish Town) were held in the home of William and Fanny Smith.
  • Fanny Cochrane Smith (1834-1905) was recognised by the Tasmanian government as 'the last survivor' of the Tasmanian Aboriginal race, and was granted 305 acres of land at Nicholls Rivulet in 1889. The Smith family became leading members of the Methodist community. One of the sons, William, became a lay preacher.
  • Fanny, in particular, was regarded as a tireless worker, and in late 1895 or early 1896 she gave half an acre of land for the purposes of building a church. It was intended 'to hold the land until the necessity arises for us to erect a church'.
Within five years the Methodist congregation had outgrown the accommodation afforded by Fanny's kitchen, and the foundation stone of the church was laid on 6 November 1900.
  • The construction of the church took six months, and the first services were held in the new church on Sunday 5 may 1901, when the Reverend CW Atkinson preached in both the morning and afternoon.
  • It is not known when the Methodist church ceased to be used for worship. Miss Henslowe records that the building was used by the local Anglican community.

C4. Port Cygnet Geological Monuments Lymington Road, Cygnet, TAS, Australia

The sites include outcrops of uncommon rocks with distinctive texture such as the sanidine-rich phonolite. Two groups of igneous rocks (dolerite and the alkaline intrusives) occur, apparently the result of two unrelated intrusive events.
  • The hydrothermally altered rocks in area b are an excellent and uncommon example of the effects of a magma of different composition on existing rocks.
  • The sites contain the only known cretaceous rocks in Tasmania and provide an opportunity to examine an unusual magma type in conjunction with the more common doleritic rocks. These are important teaching sites. (Criteria A1, A3 & B1)

C5. Port Cygnet Wildlife Sanctuary Cygnet, TAS, Australia

Port Cygnet Conservation Area provides excellent waterfowl habitat for a range of waterbirds which breed, shelter and feed in the reserve. A striking and rare example of the phenomena associated with alkaline intrustive complex occurs on the western foreshore of Port Cygnet, near Regatta Point.

C6. Port Cygnet-Huon River Geological Monuments Cygnet, TAS, Australia

The Port Cygnet exposures provide comprehensive sections displaying the Lymington stage of the Permian system in Tasmania and provide data crucial to the interpretation of the Permian in Tasmania.
  • The sections are an excellent record of marine conditions during a glacial episode.
  • The sites are an outstanding example of a stratigraphical reference section in the fossiliferous sedimentary strata. They are used as the reference section for this stage of the Permian in Tasmania, having long continuous exposures without abrupt changes in lithology. The beds are unfaulted and are continuously fossiliferous, with the fossils well preserved.

Factories for the manufacture of jam, apple processing and dehydration, as well as the manufacture of wood wool were built on the land now known as Burton’s reserve.
  • This is the triangular piece of land explored by the French. It is situated where the Agnes Rivulet enters Port Cygnet.
Apples and cherries are still grown in the Cygnet area and cider is made here and in the Huon Valley, but the large processing factories of the Harvey era have gone.
  • Relics of the early apple industry can still be seen around the town of Cygnet.
  • If you look closely as you drive you will see packing sheds, old steam engines, apple pickers’ huts, and the original brick apple dehydrating kilns made of brick.
  • A few very old apple trees can be seen in paddocks or on the roadside.
At Burton’s Reserve in Cygnet remain a few buildings from the apple processing era – the Weighbridge, the Bridge Cottage and a shed that is now used by the Cygnet Scouts.
  • For those who are interested a model of the Harvey and Burton factories that stood on the site is on display. There is also an interesting steam engine.

This place has strong meaning for the community because it demonstrates aspects of Federation society and contributes to the early twentieth century streetscape. The former ANZ Bank is of historic heritage significance because of its ability to demonstrate the principal characteristics of a double storey brick and stuccoed Federation Free Classical bank building. These characteristics are found in the external form, construction methods and the detailing, both externally and internally.

Description: This is a double storey brick building with a hipped roof and contrasting brick and stucco on the facade. There is a pediment above the centre upper storey. There is heavy stuccoed detailing around the windows and in a wide horizontal band between the upper and lower storeys. There is a stuccoed arched porch supported by Classical columns and with a balcony above. The lower storey windows are grouped in threes with the middle windows being arched.

Prior to European settlement the area around Dover was inhabited by Nuenonne Aboriginal people for at least 30,000 years.
  • The town's locality was named Port Esperance by the French explorer, Admiral Bruni D'Entrecasteaux, who charted the area in 1792.
In 1792 Bruni D'Entrecasteaux explored the area and named the bay Esperance after L'Esperance, one of the vessels in his expedition.
  • Dover was originally established as a convict probation station which operated between 1844 and 1848. There is now little evidence of the town's penal past.
Dover lies beside the waters of Esperance Bay and the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, with the imposing figure of Adamson's Peak in the background. Dover is a pretty fishing village with beaches, pastoral scenery and plenty of fresh seafood and produce for hungry travellers.
  • Dover is not quite the southernmost town in Australia but it is close. One of Tasmania's most southern towns, Dover sits at the head of Esperance Bay and overlooks the small islands of Faith, Hope and Charity.external image Dover-island.jpg
    • Dover's settlement began after the closure of the Port Esperance convict probation station, 1845–47. Timber splitters, then mill men exported huge quantities of beams, piles, paving blocks and railway sleepers worldwide, shipping from the port of Dover.
    • Four large mills in a radius of four miles, plus smaller mills, brought community development. As land was cleared, orchards were planted.
    • After the First World War, the timber industry slowed, and only Raminea mill continued until 1973. Small mills cut timber for apple boxes. Small fruits and orcharding were important in the area until 1970, when markets changed.
  • Dover has attractive beaches and unspoilt scenery, while quaint cottages and English trees give the town an old world charm.
    • The town is a centre for apple orchards and fishing for salmon, abalone and crayfish. Its Atlantic salmon fish farm is the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.
    • The town has a population of about 500 and the major industries are forestry and fishing; particularly Atlantic salmon, abalone and cray fishing, and nearby are apple orchards.
    • After the convict settlement the small town developed as an important port shipping huon pine to the world. By 1850 there were a number of sawmills in the area. Some of the old steam driven timber cutting engines can still be seen in the local museum.
      It is claimed that the one link between Dover in England and Dover in Tasmania is that huon pine shipped from this area was used in the construction of Dover Pier.

  • Dover was originally established as a convict probation station. Here, inmates transitioned to the status of a pass-holder, eligible to be assigned to employers and earn wages while still serving their time in the penal system.
  • There is now little evidence of the town's penal past.
    All that remains is the well preserved (and privately owned) Commandant's Office(Rodman) which is located next to the Caravan Park on Kent Beach Road.
  • Picturesquely situated on Port Esperance, Dover offers excellent views across the water to the islands named Faith, Hope and Charity.
  • It is possible to sail across to Faith Island where there are a number of historic graves from the 1840s when Dover was a convict probation station.
    A trip out to three islands in the bay named Faith, Hope and Charity is recommended
  • The three islands were named perhaps to inspire the convicts held at the original probation station.
  • The smallest of the three islands in Esperance Bay, Faith Island, was known in earlier times as Dead Island. When the Dover Convict Probation Station was in use between late 1844 and 1848, numerous convicts were buried here, hence its early name.

St Marys Church of Our Hope
St Marys Church of Our Hope

St Marys of Our Hope Church is a rare intact example of a Henry Hunter designed weatherboard church. It is one of only two fully intact examples, and is the only surviving church that fully reflects Pugin principles followed by Hunter.
  • The church is of historic cultural heritage significance because of its special association with Henry Hunter, critically acclaimed as Tasmanias greatest nineteenth century architect and the most prolific church architect.
  • Hunters designs are distinctive because he followed and practiced principles set by A. Welby Pugin involving such concepts as honesty of construction.
  • This place is of historic heritage significance because of its ability to demonstrate the principal characteristics of a weatherboard Victorian Carpenter Gothic church.
Description: It is a Victorian Carpenter Gothic church that has a steeply-pitched gable roof clad with corrugated iron.
  • There are plain timber bargeboards to the gable ends of the main roof, the front porch, and sacristy, and crucifix-shaped finials to both gable-ends of the main roof. Windows are square-head timber-framed and multi-paned.

  • The historic village of Franklin, once a bustling shipping port, nestles in Tasmania’s orchard and southern wineries region. Along with hillsides of apples and cherries, and the majestic Art Deco Palais Theatre, it is home of the Wooden Boat Centre, preserving the skills of traditional wooden boatbuilding.

    • The main township, first called 'The Settlement' and then renamed Franklin in honour of Lady Franklin, grew up around Fleurty's Rivulet and up as far as Prices Creek.
    • Hemmed in by river, the mudflats and the steep hillsides it became the biggest township on the Huon River with a large number stores, some fruit processing factories, and a grain mill which was established by John Clark just north of the township.
    Lord and Lady Franklin used to stay at Clark's Mill at Woodside on their visits to the Huon. To commemorate these visits a cypress tree was planted many years later next to the jetty where the Franklins used to tie up in their boat, the Huon Pine, which had been built of huon pine at Port Davey.
    • In the 1840s and 1850s, after the Franklins had left Van Diemen's Land, many of the early settlers moved away from Franklin and settled along the river. The Geeves family moved to Lightwood Bottom in 1850 and founded Geeveston, the Judd brothers founded Juddbury and the Sherwins moved just south of Juddbury to Forest Home.

During the 1850s, timber getting was revolutionised with the introduction of the timber tramway which enabled the movement of large and regular volumes of timber from the bush to mills and wharves.
This form of transport operated until at least the 1950s. The McMullens Leithbridge Tramway is a good and relatively intact example of a timber tramline associated with this major phase of timber harvesting.
  • Steam technology introduced in the 1870s made a quantum leap in the technology of timber getting. It led to new machines to haul and load timber such as log haulers which retrieved felled trees from the butt to the timber tramway. Steam powered log haulers continued in use until the 1950s.

The Palais Theatre is a Federation style theatre at Franklin, in the heart of the Huon Valley, approximately 30 minutes drive south of Hobart Tasmania. This was originally the Franklin Town Hall, opened in 1912.

Vandalism and disrepair reached such a stage that there was talk of demolition but this was fortunately fended off by the establishment of the Palais Management Committee and it was substantially due to their efforts, especially those of Paul Abbott and Lloyd Griffiths, and a work for the dole programme, that saw this elderly but distinguished building restored to health.

It is available for hire for concerts, dances, weddings, meetings, private functions etc.
It is a double storey brick building with rusticated stone base and a hipped roof. There are timber framed windows with multi-paned top sashes and a cantilevered portico over the entrance. There is a stuccoed band under the eaves.

A single storey Inter-War Free Classical building. These characteristics are found in the external form, construction methods and the detailing, both externally and internally.

Description: The Franklin Masonic Hall is a single-storey brick, Inter-War Free Classical building. Of an overall simple and restrained style, it indicates the later stripped classical forms. On a rectangular plan design, the hipped roof form is concealed behind a large parapet and entablature. Strong contrasts are achieved between the deep red of the bricks and the white stucco. The fagade is simply formed, and classical themes conveyed through thinly layered pilasters. Art Deco motifs are included in the stucco work. Windows of multiple small panes are featured on the side of the building at the upper area.

The first Franklin Tavern began life in 1846 as a general store situated higher up on the hill. Licensee Elijah Brown decided to move the hotel closer to the road in 1853 – it became the Franklin Hotel and was later renamed the Federal Hotel.
In 1979 the present owner, Kon Reitler, purchased the hotel and undertook an extensive restoration program, changing the name to Franklin Tavern.
