Hobart’s waterfront was where it all started for Europeans in Tasmania.

We will cover the story of the birth of a new British colony, and the growth of a lovely city, recalling the good, the bad and the scandalous characters that set the tone for the early days of Hobart. Things have changed!

See and hear about stories of endurance, business empires, tycoons, adventurers, convicts, women, mothers, villains and heroes. Discover the marvelous legacy left by the resilience of our convict and free-settler ancestors.
