Heritage

Heritage in Northern Tasmania is a little different to other places in the world. You don’t stand back from afar and admire it, you live in and around it! Northern Tasmania has many examples of Georgian, Victorian and Federation period pieces. Many have been preserved and can now be seen as tourist accommodation, restaurants and attractions. So there is no need to get in line or get out your binoculars, you can wake up in a beautifully restored historic room!
