Bothwell

Bothwell - Hobart Region - Tasmania

Gateway to Tassie's central highlands, Bothwell is approximately 73 kilometres north-west of Hobart. Walk in the footsteps of pioneers as you take in the grandeur of 19th century architecture lining the expansive streets. Your self guided walk will transport you back in time with over 50 buildings including cottages, churches, houses and official buildings assembled around Queens Park. The early 1800's proved to be an innovative time with the first golf course in Australia being laid here in 1837 which still remains a source of delight for the town today. Sift through memorabilia and history at the Australasian Golf Museum and keen golfers should not miss the rare golfing experience of Ratho, putting on greens serviced by grazing sheep.

Nearby Ouse River is a great place to try your hand at hooking a brown trout in a region plugged as enjoying some of Australia's finest freshwater fishing. Thanks to the towns Scottish birthright, Bothwell plays host to a fine drop of single malt whiskey where visitors are invited to sample the goods at one of Australia's top whiskey distilleries at Nant Distillery.
