Information

Latrobe is located in northern Tasmania, near Devonport. It is situated on the Mersey River. This quiet little town dates back to the 1820s when it was the main port of the north-west. There are more than 70 heritage-listed buildings in the main strip reflecting that history, ranging from the grand to the quaint.For a small town, Latrobe likes to host a festival or two. Love chocolate? So do the locals. Time your visit with the annual Chocolate Winterfest, and be sure to drop in at the House of Anvers, a popular chocolate factory and tasting experience. A highlight of the Henley-on-Mersey Australia Day Festival is wood chopping. Fun fact: Latrobe is the home of this classic Aussie sport; the first wood chopping championship was staged in the town in 1891. Check out the Australian Axeman's Hall of Fame at Bells Parade. Platypus are regularly seen here.
