Hamilton Information

Hamilton in Tasmania is a small rural town with a population of about 350 people. In history the town once contained many buildings and a working brewery and was nearly the site of the capital for Tasmania before Hobart was declared.

History indicates that Scottish farmers who started farming the area originally settled Hamilton. You will still see many heritage cottages and farm buildings in the area.

Situated on the Clyde River the town has thrived as an agricultural region and today there are many farms and agricultural businesses surrounding the area. A great place to visit is the Curringa Farm, which is a genuine 750 acre, award winning, sheep and cropping farm close to Mt Field National Park on the main highway to the West Coast.

At Curringa Farm there are tours available for you to get a real taste of what farming life is all about. You can see working farm dogs rounding sheep in the field all the way to the sheering process in the sheering shed. The tours are available from September to April every year.

Hamilton also has a lot of historical buildings in town, most of which were built by convicts such as the Old School House built back in 1858. Today the School House is an English style bed and breakfast and a worthwhile place to stay at.

Another great attraction is the Prospect Villa and Garden. This place has exceptional gardens in an extreme landscape. The Home is made of sandstone but the garden is something out of a romantic novel and the flowers are adorable while offering panoramic views of the area.

Jackson’s Emporium is another great place to visit in Hamilton. The Emporium specializes in Tasmanian fresh produce and locally made gifts. The Emporium was built back in 1856.
