Information

The town of Pontville is one of Tasmania’s oldest settlements, and is around a half hour drive north from Hobart. On one side, the town overlooks the Jordan River. The vast plain on the opposite side was once a travelling route for Tasmanian Aboriginal people. Today, Pontville is rich in heritage and charm.

Pontville offers an intriguing glimpse back into the 19th century. Discover historic churches and cemeteries, ruins of the first shops and garrison buildings, grand Georgian residences, a cosy inn, and historic accommodation. Enjoy hearty country fare in the local pub (c. 1835) or dine in at Twelve Stones Restaurant in the old Uniting Church building (c. 1874). Another church of note is St. Mark’s, a rare example of the Romanesque-style, designed by convict architect James Blackburn.
