Places nearby Bothwell


Bothwell is the gateway to the central highland and was settled by Scottish pioneer farmers in the early 1820s. It has wide open streets, and lovely 19th century buildings. As you would expect it sits on the Clyde River, where Australia's first herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle grazed, and, of course, the first golf course was laid, in the mid-1830s. Today you can play Ratho's nine holes and visit the Australasian Golf Museum. Walking round the town is to walk back in time - more than 50 colonial cottages, houses and official buildings (the town's first library opened in 1837) cluster around the trees and grass of Queens Park. Bothwell is a good base for fishing or exploring. Bothwell is on the A5, 73 kilometres (45 miles) northwest of Hobart.
