LOW HEAD PILOT STATION

by balhannah

The Pilot Station and Maritime Museum are located at Low Head which is on a tip of Tasmania where the Tamar River enters the Ocean.

The pilot station has been in continuous use since 1807. It's a collection of white painted cottages in a beautiful setting beside the river.

The Maritime Museum occupies the 1835 Pilots Row, the oldest and largest building on the site. Inside the building, there are 10 rooms of maritime and communication memorabilia, including a complete deep diving suit, air pumps and artefacts recovered from wrecks. and stories of shipping on the Tamar River, and relics of the days of sail and steam.

It is Australia's oldest continuously used pilot station, and is still being used today.

Further on is Australia's third oldest light station, with its light house and the only operating G-type fog horn in the Southern Hemisphere whhich sounds at noon each Sunday.

The Pilot Station and Maritime Museum is approximately 45-minutes drive , 58kms from Launceston.
Open Daily 10am - 4pm
ENTRY IS $5

River walk & Park No.2: Kings Park By Tamar River

by xuessium

2008:
For folks wishing to explore the town a little more on foot, Launceston has walkway plenty along the North Esk River and the Tamar River. Take a light stroll along the 2 rivers that gave Launceston life. The view is not always breathtaking....but it is certainly serene and you will be walking by landmarks, such as the Boag & Sons Brewery etc.

I took a short stroll, starting from the Queen Victoria Museum @ Inveresk along the North Esk River, all the way to the Seaport area along the Tamar River with its swanky posh waterfront houses, finally finding myself exiting into the Park I spent a lovely afternoon in back in 2001.

2001:
I spent a lovely afternoon here, doing almost nothing, but sitting by the river banks, watching yachts sailing up and down the Tamar River, enjoying the occasional breeze, lapping up the "let-the-world-go-by" state of mind and chatting with my friends. There isn't a place in the world I am rushing off to that afternoon.

My Place of Birth

by suzyq40

"Where I was born"

I was born in Launceston on 22 December 1978 at Queen Victoria Hospital. Unfortunately its not there anymore, well in a hospital capacity anyway.

Launceston is the 2nd oldest city in Australia. It is situated on the Tamar river and has the North and south esk rivers running into it.

Launceston is very quiet. There is very little shopping, and many businesses do not survive, however, new ones are always opening up.
