Richmond, Tasmania

570

Published on

As Tasmania’s most important historic town, Richmond is one of the state’s most popular destinations, the perfect base for exploring Tasmania’s South East. Historic, romantic, family friendly, a hub for food and wine lovers with its fresh food and fine wines, grown in fertile soils under the world’s cleanest air. Good examples of Tasmania’s stark convict heritage and beautiful historic buildings. The town is as elegant today as it was in the 1820’s, when it was an important military staging post and convict station linking Hobart with Port Arthur. Nestled in the Coal River Valley, this classified historic town is famous for its Georgian architecture. The stone buildings now house galleries, teashops, craft boutiques and museums, offering every convenience and luxury to the modern visitor.

  • I walk the maze of moments But everywhere I turn to begins a new beginning But never finds a finish I walk to the horizon And there I find another It all seems so surprising And then I find that I know Chorus: You go there you're gone forever I go there I'll lose my way If we stay here we're not together Anywhere Is
  • The moon upon the ocean Is swept around in motion But without ever knowing The reason for its flowing In motion on the ocean The moon still keeps on moving The waves still keep on waving And I still keep on going
  • Chorus I wonder if the stars sign the life that is to be mine And would they let their light shine Enough for me to follow I look up to the heavens But night has clouded over No spark of constellation No Vela no Orion
  • The shells upon the warm sands Have taken from their own lands The echo Of Their Story But All I hear are low sounds As pillow words are weaving And willow waves are leaving But should I be believing That I am only dreaming
  • Chorus To leave the thread of all time And let it make a dark line In hopes That I can Still Find The way back to the moment I took the turn and turned to Begin a new beginning Still looking for the answer I cannot find the finish It's either this or that way It's one way or the other It should be one direction It could be on reflection The turn I have just taken The turn that I was making I might be just beginning I might be near the end

  • Enya (born Eithne Patricia Ní Bhraonáin, 17 May 1961) is an Irish singer, instrumentalist and composer. The media sometimes refer to her by the Anglicized name, Enya Brennan; Enya is an approximate transliteration of how Eithne is pronounced in the Gaoth Dobhair dialect of the Irish language, her native tongue She began her musical career in 1980, when she briefly joined her family band Clannad, before leaving to perform solo. She gained wider recognition for her music in the 1986 BBC series The Celts. Shortly afterwards, her 1988 album Watermark propelled her to further international fame and she became known for her unique sound, characterised by voice-layering, folk melodies, synthesised backdrops and ethereal reverberations

    1. 1. Tasmania 4
    2. 2. With more than 50 19th-century buildings and just 27km from Hobart, Richmond is arguably Tasmania's premier historic town.
    3. 4. St Johns Church, beside the Coal River and across the bridge from the town, is the oldest Roman Catholic Church in Australia.
    4. 6. The church was designed by the ex-convict architect, Frederick Thomas, and the nave was completed in 1836 and opened on 31 December 1837.
    5. 8. Straddling the Coal River and on the old route between Hobart and Port Arthur, Richmond was once a strategic military post and convict station.
    6. 9. Built by convicts in 1823, and hence the oldest road bridge in Australia, Richmond Bridge formed a vital link for the young colony and encouraged construction of the many old buildings seen today.
    7. 10. The town is surrounded by Tasmania's fastest-growing wine region - known as the Coal River Valley - and there are wineries in all directions.
    8. 12. The Tasmanian Native-hen (Gallinula mortierii) is a flightless rail, one of twelve species of birds endemic to the Australian island of Tasmania Although flightless, this bird is capable of running quickly and has been recorded running at speeds up to 30 miles per hour (approx. 48 km/h), It uses its wings when running fast to help it to balance (the common name is Turbo chook)
    9. 14. With the completion of the Sorell Causeway in 1872, traffic travelling to the Tasman Peninsula and the east coast bypassed Richmond.
    10. 15. The town remained the focus of a farming community but ceased to grow - in fact, for more than a century it changed very little.
    11. 22. Peruvian Pepper (Schinus molle, also known as American pepper, Peruvian peppertree, false pepper, is a quick growing evergreen tree that grows to 15 meters
    12. 23. The bright pink fruits of Schinus molle are often sold as "pink peppercorns" although Schinus molle is unrelated to true pepper (Piper nigrum).
    13. 24. It has, however, become widely naturalized around the world where it has been planted as an ornamental and for spice production
    14. 25. This tree is invasive throughout much of Australia in a range of habitats from grasslands to dry open forest and coastal areas, as well as railway sidings and abandoned farms.

    16. 33. The 1888 Richmond Arms Hotel (Bridge St).
