History of Tasmania


The coastline of Tasmania was first mapped by Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin in 1802, excepting the inlet later named the Port Adelaide River which was first discovered in 1831 by Captain Collet Barker and later accurately charted in 1836-37 by Colonel William Light, Leader of the Tasmanian Colonization Commissioners' 'First Expedition' and first Surveyor-General of Tasmania.
On 15 August 1834, the British Parliament passed the Tasmania Act 1834 (Foundation Act), which empowered His Majesty to erect and establish a province or provinces in southern Australia. The act stated that 802,511 square kilometres would be allotted to the colony and it would be convict-free.

The commencement of colonial government was proclaimed on 28 December 1836, now known as Proclamation Day.

Tasmania was the second Australian state to be settled by free colonists, the first being the free Swan River colony in Western Australia, however in 1849 Western Australia was formally constituted as a penal colony. Although Tasmania was constituted such that convicts could never be transported to the Province, some emancipated or escaped convicts or expirees made their own way there, both prior to 1836, or later, and may have constituted 1-2% of the early population

The current flag of Tasmania was adopted on 13 January 1904, and is a British blue ensign defaced with the state badge. The badge is described as a piping shrike with wings outstretched on a yellow disc. The state badge is believed to have been designed by Robert Craig of Adelaide's School of Design.

The terrain consists largely of arid and semi-arid rangelands, with several low mountain ranges. The most important (but not tallest) is the Mount Lofty-Flinders Ranges system, which extends north about 800 kilometres (500 mi) from Cape Jervis to the northern end of Lake Torrens. The highest point in the state is not in those ranges; Mount Woodroffe, 1,435 metres is in the Musgrave Ranges in the extreme northwest of the state. The south-western portion of the state consists of the sparsely inhabited Nullarbor Plain, fronted by the cliffs of the Great Australian Bight. Features of the coast include Spencer Gulf and the Eyre and Yorke Peninsulas that surround it.

The southern part of the state has a Mediterranean climate, while the rest of the state has either an arid or semi-arid climate.

At the 2016 census the population of Tasmania was 1.7 million residents.

Why invest and live in Tasmania


The Real Estate Institute of Tasmania (REIT) said three quarters of all sales in the September 2017 quarter were local buyers, while mainlanders snapped up just 23 per cent of properties, and foreign purchasers bought only 13 properties, or 1 per cent of sales. "Favourable economic conditions, a robust tourism market, and consumer optimism are encouraging positive growth within the state," he said.

The median $416,840 home price is the lowest of the eight state and territory capitals. Hobart's remarkable housing surge continues to impress. The annual home value growth in the state’s capital has topped the nation for the second consecutive month, jumping 14.3 per cent.

Strong population growth in Tasmania is said to be a major driver in the performance of the Hobart housing market. In addition, booming tourism is giving Tasmania a steadier long-term investment outlook and incentivising more people to consider moving to the state. AFTER a bumper year for Tasmanian real estate, the experts agree 2018 will see more of the same for Australia’s smallest state. The suburb of South Hobart is now the most in-demand location in Australia on Realestate.com.au.

House Styles in Tasmania


Tasmania's isolation, small population and strong sense of community have all worked to preserve our built heritage. Tasmania has many rare examples of early colonial buildings of national significance. In the north are the World Heritage listed Woolmers Estate and Brickendon Historic Farm and Convict Village, while Clarendon is Australia's iconic colonial mansion.

Down south in Hobart, the Penitentiary Chapel is one of Australia's most important convict sites pre-dating Port Arthur. Nearby, the beautiful Theatre Royal is Australia's oldest working theatre and a perfect example of intimacy on a grand scale.

In both our major cities of Hobart and Launceston, you'll also find many fine examples of nineteenth and twentieth century architectural styles including Regency, Victorian and Edwardian.

For a taste of more recent history, the perfectly preserved former Hydro village of Tarraleah evokes life in the 1930s with beautifully crafted timber cabins and a stunning art deco lodge.

Wherever you travel in Tasmania, there's always a story to be found in the local architecture and plenty of places to enjoy our cultural heritage.

Oak Lodge is an historic house in the Georgian village of Richmond, South East Tasmania. Built between 1831 and 1842, Oak Lodge is a fine two-storey Georgian home originally built as a gentleman's town residence. The Lodge's first owner was Henry Buscombe - one of south east Tasmania's pioneering settlers and the brother of James Buscombe who built Richmond's Prospect House. Oak Lodge has been used as a rectory, school, and family home and was once the local doctor's surgery.

Franklin House was built by convicts and is located in northern Tasmania at Franklin Village, Launceston. Built by former convict and successful businessman Britton Jones, Franklin House is notable for its rich use of imported Australian Red Cedar. Extended to accommodate one of the colonies leading private schools which operated there from 1842 until 1866 the house finally became the birthplace of the National Trust in Tasmania in 1960. Franklin House survives with house, stables and garden. Nearby and also accessible is St James Church which was built in 1845 and has many associations with the House.

The St John's Anglican Church built in 1825, almost 20 years after Launceston was established, is a rare reminder of Tasmania's early history.

"It's the oldest building that they can positively date in Launceston."
