Shining a light on different regions around Tasmania is what we love about our roaming annual Cross Pollinate Conference.
For 2019, we are in Hamilton, on Jane and Tim Parson's farm, Curringa. We can't wait to share with you this amazing property, the history of this region and the varied pockets of beauty across the farm.
5831 Lyell Highway, Hamilton TAS 7140. Click here to see the location on Google Maps.
Hamilton is a small rural farming town with historic buildings throughout the town and surrounding farmland.
Nestled in a valley on the Clyde River with the peaks of the Great Western Tiers in the distance, Hamilton was once a bustling frontier town and transport hub with several working breweries, a string of hotels and a roaring illegal liquor trade.
While Hamilton may be a quiet town today, it comes alive once a year for the Hamilton Show and always welcomes travellers on their way to and from Tasmania's West Coast.
Hamilton is a 1-hr drive (74 km) north-west of Hobart.
