Explore this unique and fascinating region where the past is always present. Discover its colourful, colonial history. Walk in the footsteps of infamous bush-rangers and illustrious stonemasons; the enterprising wool growers and the hardened convict road gangs and the political exiles, scoundrels and opportunists who have all contributed to the rich stories of Tasmania’s first Main Road.
The thread of quaint villages is their lasting legacy. Surrounded by gracious homes, historic farming properties and a wealth of magnificent, heritage architecture, this is also the scenic countryside that inspired the famous artists, Tom Roberts and John Glover, who was known as the ‘Father of Australian Landscape Painting’.
