Bells Parade Reserve


Picturesque Bell's Parade is situated on the Latrobe inlet of the Mersey River. It is named after Robert Bell, who with his half brother Henry Bentinck constructed a wharf and a store on the site in 1855.
From the 1880's it was the main port on the river, becoming northern Tasmania's second major trading port for a period.
Old English trees abound along the Parade adding natural splendour to the tranquillity and with barbecue facilities available it makes an ideal location for a picnic. It is also a popular spot during the warmer months for wedding ceremonies and photo opportunities.
In 1988 as a Bi-Centenary Project, Bell's Parade was extensively restored and beautified through community efforts, with significant contributions from Latrobe Service Clubs and local pioneer families. The history is beautifully depicted on sculptures by Tasmanian artist Stephen Walker, and located at Bell's Parade in an area known as 'Settlers Wharf'.
The 'Henley-On-The-Mersey' carnival is held at Bell's Parade annually on Australia Day, 26 January and has been a major social and sporting event for in excess of 85 years.

Henley-on-Mersey


Celebrate Australia's proud heritage and pioneering spirit as well as our unique quirkiness at Henley on the Mersey.
Try your hand at archery, whip cracking, sheaf tossing, egg throwing, scarecrow competition and the hurdy-gurdy.
A major feature of our program are the annual ferret races; this involves the ferrets being placed in one end of a long pipe that traverses up and down and around hay bales, with the first ferret to fully emerge from the pipe at the other end being the winner.
There are quite some anxious moments when the ferret starts to emerge, the crowd roars with delight and the ferret promptly retreats back into the pipe. There are also the delightful ferret fashion parade and ferret 'chocolate wheel' in which visitors and participants can win great prizes.
