Places nearby Sorell


Sorell, 26 kilometres east of Hobart, sits at the junction of two roads that can take you south to the Tasman Peninsula and Port Arthur (Highway A9) or north and east to our east coast beaches (Highway A3). The town's population has grown to around 4,000, and Sorell is a popular service centre for local farms, light industry and its growing suburbs. Look out for the Sorell Fruit Farm, where you can pick all sorts of stone and berry fruits in season. Sorell is a good place to stock up on supplies and fuel before heading off on your journey. Just off the main street you will find Sorell Antiques and the Blue Bell Inn, a former coaching inn, built in 1829, that now offers quality accommodation and meals. The town was first explored in 1805 by Lieutenant Governor Collins and in 1821 was named after the governor of the day, Lieutenant Governor William Sorell (Governor of Van Diemen's Land - April 1817 - May 1824). Tasmania's most notorious bushranger, Matthew Brady, held up the town jail and freed the prisoners. One of Australia's best known combat cameramen, Neil Davis, was from Sorell. He filmed wars in South-East Asia until his death in 1985. Sorell's weather is similar to Hobart with an average maximum summer temperature of 22 degrees Celsius and minimum of eight degrees Celsius. Sorell is 30 minutes' drive east of Hobart and 10 minutes' drive from Hobart International Airport.
