By roads not open to the public, we visit relics of the first European settlements in NW Tasmania (c 1827 – 1831), set in delightful surroundings amidst ancient acres of native grasslands, with mountains on all sides. Follow in the 1830 footsteps of George Augustus Robinson and Truganini at Weybridge; visit the remains of a shepherd’s hut at Howden already abandoned in 1834; and have a distant view of a rock cairn built by Hellyer in 1831. Learn of discovery, exploration and settlement, of murder and mayhem.
Enrolled participants will be sent background notes and other relevant information.
