In 1860 Spring Bay was declared a municipality. The local Council chambers were built in 1862.
Today known as Triabunna the area is "surprisingly ordinary": a town for fishermen and timber workers rather than a place full of interesting history, although the Spring Bay Hotel, a rather modern building, does claim on its from that it is circa 1838.[1]


The Heritage of Spring Bay


SB1. Rostrevor Farm & Stables, 8731 Tasman Highway Triabunna TAS


Established in early 1830's Rostrevor Estate has had a long history with the nearby town of Triabunna. At one stage the Estate was owned by Captain Michael Vicary of Her Majesty's 63rd Regiment.
  • Capt. Vicary died in 1867 and is buried in the Family Homestead Graveyard at Rostrevor, as are other family members.
  • From 1903 until 1973 fruit growing on Rostrevor was an important industry. This used to be the largest apple and pear orchard in the southern hemisphere.
  • The packing sheds, buildings, stables and fresh natural pasture are largely as they were left at the end of the apple and pear orchard era.
  • The orchard was owned by Henry Jones and Co and in its heyday was one of the largest in the southern hemisphere.
  • By 1971 only 50 acres of trees remained. At one time there were 16 houses on Rostrevor which were occupied rent free by permanent workers.

After 1973 when all the fruit trees were removed, the property returned to prime grazing and wool growing, with as many as 7000 head of sheep.
  • Rostrevor still has its historical outlook with old stone stables, machinery and cool rooms dating back to the orchard days.

  • It also has the historic 1,100 megalitre Rostrevor Lagoon that was originally constructed in 1914.

  • Today and for three generations they have a vibrant mainly wool growing farm with famous merino breed of sheep.

  • More than just a sheep farm the property encompasses many of the earliest European settlement history of the area including spring, quarry, the original Okehampton settlement, pristine beaches, pastures and more.
'Rostrevor' today has retained all of the main features from when it was a large production orchard.

It has different generation packing sheds, different generation cool stores,
  • the original still with its cooling plant,
  • a 'timber shed', stables, tanks, and remains of irrigation systems,
  • as well as the earlier 19th century farm features such as early workers houses, other farm sheds and a shearing shed, all in relatively good condition.

  • Established in early 1830's Rostrevor Estate has had a long history with the nearby town of Triabunna.

'Rostrevor' has excellent preservation of apple-related features (although no orchards survive); the antiquity of the property generally and many of the other farming features; and for its association in the orcharding period with Henry Jones, and to a lesser extent with other well known orchardists such as the Frankcombs of 'Clifton', Ranelagh;

'Rostrevor' was the only major commercial orchard in the Eastern region. It was established initially as a general farm property in the 1800s.
  • Purchased in 1903 by a partnership of Henry Jones, T. A. Frankcomb and E. A. Peacock in 1903, by the 1930s the property had become one of the largest orchards in Australia, and one of the largest in the southern hemisphere.
  • The property had 500 acres of land planted out to plum, pear and apple orchard.
  • Henry Jones, of Henry Jones & Co., was at the time controlling one ofthe two major jam factories in Hobart and had a major interest in overseas apple export.
  • The success of the venture was due in large part to the more suitable weather of Triabunna for pome fruit growing, innovations such as irrigation to cope with the dry periods, astute management, and the better transport facilities established by this century.

The famed Rostrevor Estate at Triabunna has an agricultural and social history as rich as any property in Tasmania.
  • In 1903 the property began a transformation from sheep, cattle and horses into what was to become the largest commercial orchard in Australia under the ownership of Henry Jones and Co.
    • Henry Jones' orchard, 'Rostrevor', was a large and unusual orchard for the east coast. 'Rostrevor' is known to have had a number of employees who lived on the property, and in its peak was the largest employer in the Spring Bay area.
    • It relied on horses to work in the orchard and transport the fruit to the jetty. Clydesdale horses were used to pull wagons of fresh fruit to the Triabunna jetty.
    • The cases were then loaded on to the SS Koomee/a, the SS Moonah, Loongana and the Terralinna, for transport to the Hobart wharves, and unloaded there, some going to the factory for canning or jam and the rest loaded onto overseas ships to Liverpool, Hamburg, Stockholm and Gothenburg (Norway).
  • Rostrevor Estate's value as a prime grazing and wool growing property was realized in 1973 when, along with 7,000 sheep and 400 cattle it changed hands to the current family ownership.

The property now boasts around 1,600 hectares of improved land and a perfect combination of modern agricultural conveniences in a scenic historical setting.
  • Old stone stables, machinery and hay shedding, super shed, huge packing and storage sheds, 2 cool rooms, and a 4 stand raised board shearing shed with under cover yards are all gathered in a central station area sheltered by massive Oak, Elm, and Ash trees.
  • There are also 7 houses on the property including the 22 year old main 4 bedroom homestead.
  • Two 12 hectare pivot sites are watered by both reuse water from the Triabunna township and from a 575 megalitre water right from the historic 1,100 megalitre Rostrevor Lagoon that was originally constructed in 1914.
From 1914, water was supplied to the 'Rostrevor' orchards from a large dam by way of a water race to the northern orchard and by pipes to the western and southern orchards. The water had to be pumped from the dam. Rostrevor Reservoir, when full, covers an area of around 35 hectares
  • Rostrevor dam was built on Henry Jones' big orcharding property in 1914 at a cost of 3 000 pounds and held 90 000 000 gallons of water for flood irrigation of the expanding orchards

  • Jack Paton an engineer, said the steam centrifugal pump at the dam came from the Beaconsfield gold mine and could pump 40 000-45 000 gallons per hour. It had a Babcock and Woolcock water tube boiler fired with wood, a compound engine with box cycling of 28 ins and a stroke of 4 ft. The 12 ft cast iron wheel weighed 12 tons and the intake pipe of 12 ins was often blocked by eels.
  • A contract was let to local woodcutters for the supply of the wood for the steam boiler.
  • On the hill above the dam, a device with an ann indicated when water had reached the open races [that] contoured around the hill.
    The water was directed through the orchard by Bill Sparkes, an expert on 'running' irrigation channels.
  • With a fast team of horses and a plough he made a furrow into which the water flowed behind him.
  • To remove the excess water the drains built in 1904 were slabbed at the sides with timber, covered with short decking and then with sufficient soil to enable the ground to be ploughed. Later, earthenware and iron pipes were used.
  • Whilst IFS staff were on site installing the Rostrevor lagoon access infrastructure they undertook some ‘market research’ and fished the lagoon late one afternoon and early the next morning. Brown trout to 1kg readily accepted wet flies and bibbed lures particularly around the weedbeds. The lagoon has also been stocked with rainbow trout.
Cattle, sheep and wool from the property have an enviable reputation in the market place, and the standard of fencing, the quality of the pastures, and the fertilizer history are second to none. All this in combination with the mild coastal climate and proximity to Triabunna and the Tasman Highway.

History

The first European to explore the Swansea area was Captain John Henry Cox sailing from England to Sydney.
He took his ship, the Mercury, up the eastern coast of Tasmania. On 3 July 1789, having heard of vast colonies of seals in the area, he sailed along the western shore of Maria Island and into a stretch of water he named Oyster Bay.[3]

Plas Newydd Heritage:


Plas Newydd circa 1834[4] : This unique and gracious historic home was convict built of sandstone and fieldstone for the Assistant Police Magistrate Lt. Alexander MacKenzie in 1834 and is the oldest in town.
  • In 1850s Charles and Louisa Meredith, well known early Tasmanian authoress and artist, purchased the property, extended it and named it Plas Newydd (New Home) after a stately home in Wales.
The house was later used as a Church of England Rectory for 85 years and for the past 20+ years has been used as a private residence.
  • Beautifully restored to combine comfortable modern living with the elegance and grandeur of a bygone era, the home stands on a large block of 1665sqm. The property is centrally situated in the historic seaside township of Swansea, population about 650, and centre of the oldest rural municipality in Australia.
  • With a blend of carpet and exposed floorboards, it has a magnific reception or Drawing Room and huge Sitting Room (Formal Lounge) with white marble fireplace mantle for the back-to-back fireplaces. Both of these rooms have unusual 12 foot high timber panelled ceilings, 15-inch skirtings and huge wood panelled windows with views over the garden and Great Oyster Bay.
  • There is a large country kitchen with original stonework open FRANKLIN fireplace; 3 double bedrooms, two with open fires; and a study or dining room.
  • The bathroom is tiled Victorian style with a claw foot bath, antique shower surround and gold leave toilet bowl. A sunroom sits at the end of the huge veranda at the front, and at the back, a laundry (with 2nd toilet), and back porch area has been restored in keeping with the building with slimline blinds to ensure privacy.
  • A newly fenced area at the rear of the house creates an ideal courtyard/BBQ area with pergola. Or just read a book beneath the shading of a huge walnut tree. Refer to floor plan.
Garden:

The garden has been stripped back due to overgrowth, though some original larger trees, fruit trees and lavender remain, now ready to rebuild.
  • To compliment the building a Designer Garden Plan is included to give “Plas Newydd” the garden that is deserves, or just ready for you to design your own.
  • A fieldstone wall, picket fencing and an original sandstone birdbath are already a part of the ambience.

History:

Located at 1 Waterloo Road, Schouten House was built by William Champion of Hobart Town in 1845 as a wedding gift to his daughter Theresa.
  • It became known as the Swansea Inn and the southern wing was used as a brewery.
  • When Theresa died in 1855 it was sold and became a Grammar School.
  • By 1860 it had become a private residence and it was used by a number of local doctors.
  • It became a private home in the 1890s when it was purchased by Sarah Mitchell who lived in it until 1938.
  • The complex history of the dwelling is recounted in great detail at http://www.schoutenhouse.com.au/history.shtml. For more information and bookings tel: (03) 6257 8564.[6]
An Electoral Roll from 1856 shows a Patrick Cusick living at the residence of William Champion on Wellington Street, but there follows a period where the house was apparently used for a variety of short term ventures, including a school and as a private residence for local doctors, Henry Lovatt (until his death in 1885) and Arthur Naylor (until the early 1890s).
  • It was during this time that it was renamed 'Schouten House' in reference to the prominent landmarks across the bay.
  • It was purchased as a private home in the early 1890s by the lively local spinster, Sarah Mitchell, who owned it until her death in 1938, letting it to a couple named Target after the turn of the century, and living in it herself in her later years.

  • Over the next 20 years the Sinclair's designed and built 2 additional cottages Hollyhock and Primrose, built in a style sympathetic to the original cottage.
  • The studio now exists on the restored ruins of what were the old stables on the original Wagners Estate.
  • Today Wagners Cottages comprises four fully self-contained, 1 and 2 bedroom cottages each with its own secluded private garden.

Statement of Significance

A good example of a typical Georgian cottage, this property is memorable for its quite extensive dry stone walls surrounding the cottage.
  • The walls and cottage were built in the 1830's by Mr Wagner who was an obvious expert in dry stone wall construction.
Description

Georgian field stone cottage. Iron hip roof. Twelve pane windows. Attics and roof dormers.
  • Stone skillion at rear. Encircling dry laid fieldstone walls approx 1200mm high and 120-150m by 100-150m.

"The land that is called Coswell, was in 1826 a 600 acre grant to John and Hugh Addison. 'Coswell (Park)' is a farm on Tasmania’s East Coast, a few miles south of Swansea, near Great Oyster Bay”.
  • The land entitled Coswell and including Piermont increased to 1900 acres and extended from the foreshore to the western town boundary, backing onto what was once part of the Red Banks property.
  • Sections were gradually sold so that Coswell now denotes 130 acres again along the foreshore.
  • In Hazard’s Island (GSBHS File) the land is described as ‘generally stony but fair Sheep Walk.’ (p. 95)
  • There is a statement in Pioneers at Piermont by Frances Travers, which says that Coswell was built between 1827 and 1828 but there is no reference to substantiate this.
  • The only firm information about a four roomed fieldstone, timber and mortar cottage with a two roomed attic is in the census figures of 1848. There it is recorded that the completed dwelling housed 13 people, 12 of whom were free.
  • At the time the house was owned by J Addison but in the charge of J.P. Mitchell.
  • The original cottage had two wings added to it and two verandahs but this was quite some time later, perhaps about 1870.
  • The garden slopes down to a freestone garden wall, an iron gate, paddocks, the bay and of course in the
    distance as Koch says above, the Hazards."[8]

"Christopher Koch in his book The Doubleman (1985) models the fictional Greystones upon Coswell. His words describe the aspect of the house and something of its use...
  • “The house had two verandahs running front and back, connected by a central hall; and these verandahs, with their green painted posts of knotted gum-boughs, had always marked out the two natures of Greystones.
  • The front verandah, with its easy chairs overlooking the sea and its tar paper underfoot, were the guests’ territory; the territory of holiday. It looked east, to where the sun rose each morning above granite mountains called the Hazards, across the bay; lavender peaks which always suggested the remote South Sea islands….” (p.60)[9]

“We nearly always spend our holidays at Coswell.”
  • For what must be one of the original dwellings on the East Coast, Coswell has stood the test of time. The thick external walls are peeling but still mostly solid. The original shingle roof was replaced a long time ago with a tin roof but apart from the addition of modern plumbing and electricity to replace the kerosene lamps, the house remains as it was.
  • I do need to add that the land entitled Coswell and including Piermont increased to 1900 acres and extended from the foreshore to the western town boundary, backing onto what was once part of the Redbanks property. Sections were gradually sold so that Coswell now denotes 130 acres again along the foreshore.
"Coswell was lived in more often by managers than owners. In 1916 it was bought by a Mrs Samson as a wedding present for Daisy Gill (Kaye’s aunt) and Lionel Samson. Daisy and Lionel never lived at Coswell but left it to be managed by Harry and Letitia Parsons who had been managing the farm for Percy and Alma Jones, the previous owners. These two were joined in 1920 by Wally Donne who came to work there as a Jackeroo.

"The farm seems only to have consisted of a few sheep, cows and pigs and many roaming fowls."


"Coswell is a rarity. The core of the house remains an example of what at one time must have been the most common kind of dwelling that was built."
  • "A simple solid little four-roomed cottage was the simplest and fastest home for many of the early settlers to build.
  • Coswell also sits on a glorious piece of land that must be so valuable. Lets hope it can continue to be maintained. It is a precious piece of Tasmania’s history."
Statement of Significance:
Coswell is of historic cultural heritage significance as one of the oldest surviving houses in this part of the east coast of Tasmania.
  • The use of brick nogging as a construction method is rare.
  • 'Coswell' is of historic heritage significance because of its ability to demonstrate the principal characteristics of a single storey Old Colonial Georgian rural homestead with associated outbuilding."[10]

Description:
Coswell is a single storey (plus attic) brick and brick nogged house designed in the Old Colonial Georgian style.
  • It has a hipped roof, verandah to the front, decorative fascia to the verandah, tall brick chimneys, small paned double hung windows, and side and rear extensions. There is also a timber ruin nearby.
  • ARCHITECTURAL STYLE:- Old Colonial Georgian
