Stroll along the main street of this charming National Trust village just 20 minutes from Launceston. Evandale is home to the National Penny Farthing Championships held every February, the coveted Glover Prize for Landscape Painting held in March, and the Evandale Market held every Saturday.
Roughly half way from Launceston to Hobart, Campbell Town has always been a place to stop, even in colonial times. Take a self-guided walk along the Convict Brick Trail on High Street and learn of the individual stories of Tassie convicts or call into the Heritage Highway Museum.
Boasting the most sandstone buildings in any Australian town - 150 at last count - many have been converted into shops, cafes, antique stores and accommodation. The restored 19th century Callington Mill dominates the townscape, Australia’s only operational colonial windmill.
The last stop, just before Hobart, is the convict built historic estate, Shene Estate & Distillery, home to the award winning Poltergeist Gin and Mackey Whisky.
