• Pontville is on the Jordan River, 30 km north of Hobart, and is one of Tasmania's oldest settlements. The site was established as a garrison town in 1821 and by the mid-1840s had become a thriving settlement and an important staging point for travellers on route between Hobart and Launceston. Today, Pontville offers a glimpse into Tasmania's colonial past with magnificent sandstone buildings, many headstones, a cosy inn, historic accommodation and accessible heritage. Take a private tour of the Shene Estate Historic Site and explore a 19th century country estate with its Georgian farmhouse, gothic stables, convict-built barn and outbuildings.
