Hamilton is a pretty town on the Clyde River about 74 kilometres (45 miles) northwest of Hobart. Prospect Villa and Garden, not far from Hamilton, is an amazing example of what a talented and dedicated gardener can do working in an extremely dry landscape.

The home is early Georgian sandstone and the garden a series of romantic garden “rooms” abundantly planted and set in a classic design with long vistas through the garden to focal points and panoramic views. Look out for the charming, Old School House.

Convict built in 1858. The area was settled by Scottish farmers and you can still crofter cottages along with grand old farm houses, including one that is a craft gallery alongside cosy bed and breakfast homes.

Hamilton developed as a transport hub and by the 1830s was operating a number of breweries and a roaring illegal spirits trade. The early settlers had big visions and the street foundations reveal the town they dreamt of establishing. The stories of the town’s lively past are told in the Hamilton Heritage Centre. It’s a quieter place now, but not too quiet - you can fish (Meadowbank Lake is close by), swim, play tennis, go water skiing, and you’re surrounded by beautiful countryside to explore.
