Leslie Vale: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Margate Train - The


The Margate Train offers shopping with a difference at Margate, southern Tasmania.
Margate is 20 minutes south of Hobart (19 kilometres) and a short drive south of Kingston.
The Margate Train - formerly known as the Tasman Limited - made its final rail journey on 28 July 1978. The Tasman Limited was built in England in 1950 and served as a passenger service between Hobart and Launceston until 1978.
The train's carriages now house a variety of retail businesses including arts and crafts, bric-a-brac, a specialist book exchange, and a buffet car offering espresso coffee and pancake parlor.
There is also a huge antiques warehouse and second hand shop here, located in an old IXL apple packing shed, as well as a children's play area, toilets, baby change facilties and plenty of car parking.

Inverawe Native Gardens


Tasmania's largest landscaped native garden is situated a 15-minute drive from Hobart, Tasmania's capital.
Be inspired by this garden with its enormous collection of Australian native plants that sweep down to the shoreline of North West Bay. Be overwhelmed by the colour, texture and subtle scents.
Take tea on the terrace or just sit on one of the many seats, soak up the atmosphere of peace and serenity, watch some of Inverawe's 101 bird species bustle about. All twelve endemic bird species have been seen here. Bring a note book and list plants you want for your own garden. They're identified by name. Borrow some of our landscaping ideas.
French explorers and early botanists anchored in the bay and fetched water from our river. Interpretive signs tell that story. Ten thousand native plants have gone into this fourteen-year-old garden, supplementing natural regeneration. Plants are chosen for minimum water requirements and sustainability. Paths, rock walls, sculpture and poetry enhance your experience.
You'll be met on arrival, introduced to the garden and given a coloured map to help you navigate around this extensive garden. Guided tours are available on request.

Wellington Park - Mt Wellington


This touch of wilderness on Hobart's doorstep offers walking, climbing, abseiling, cycling and sightseeing opportunities less than a half-hour drive from the city.
Only in Tasmania would you find so much wilderness and natural beauty so close to the city. Mt Wellington is visible from just about anywhere in Hobart and locals, not surprisingly, refer to it as "the mountain".
The views from the summit of Mt Wellington are truly superb.
The 21 kilometre drive to the summit passes through temperate rainforest to sub-alpine flora and glacial rock formations and ends with panoramic views of Hobart, Bruny Island, D'Entrecasteux Channel and into the South West Wilderness.
On the mountain are numerous walking tracks ranging from easy strolls to tough climbs through cool forests and past springs, cascades, waterfalls and the soaring dolerite columns of the Organ Pipes.

Shot Tower - The


Built in 1870 for the production of shot, this sandstone tower rises 58 metres above the banks of the Derwent, affording spectacular views up, down and across the river.
The tower is ten metres in diameter at the base and 3.9 metres at the top - the walls a metre thick at the bottom thin out to 45 centimetres at the top. Molten lead was dropped from top to bottom of the hollow tower and its rapid descent and cooling roughly shaped it into pellets.
There is a museum at the base of the tower and a tea rooms alongside. There are 259 steps to the top, but 25 landings on which to catch your breath.

Cascades Female Factory Historic Site


The World Heritage-listed Cascades Female Factory is Australia's most significant site associated with female convicts. It is located in South Hobart in the shadow of Mount Wellington, only a short distance from the Hobart waterfront.
The Cascades Female Factory was a self-contained, purpose-built institution intended to reform female convicts, where the inmates did laundry and needlework services, offsetting some of the Colony's penal costs. Thousands of women and children were imprisoned here, and many never left.
Taking one of the guided tours will really help to bring its history to life.
The Heritage Tour is a comprehensive guided tour of the Site, including the Matron's Quarters. It is offered several times daily and lasts approximately 45 minutes. Check with the Site for times.
The dramatised Her Story experience depicts the harsh life within Yard One of the Cascades Female Factory in 1833. Performed by two actors, Her Story allows visitors to fully comprehend what happened here. Performed daily, duration approximately one hour.
Information and bookings are available on arrival, or at the Port Arthur Kiosk at the Brooke Street Pier on Hobart's waterfront.
