If you’re up for a wonderful Sunday outing, take a drive to the Eaglehawk Neck community hall on 29 September. Terry and Ted, from the Eaglehawk Neck Association have put aside a morning for members of the Tas Family History Society and they will provide a presentation on the history and background of the Neck as well as telling us a little about the Convict Trail in the region. Photos and memorabilia will be set up around the hall for us to peruse. Members from the Tasman Peninsula History group will also be there and may be able to answer any questions you may have.
The Eaglehawk Neck Association will provide morning tea and there’s plenty of space to park your cars right outside the hall. Plan to arrive by about 10 am.
After lunch, an optional walk is planned to the dog line and the historic officers’ quarters, which will be open for us to have a look through. The officers’ quarters is the only building still surviving from the original military settlement set up in the 1830s.
Cost is only $5 per person for morning tea. Payment will be taken on the day.
If you’re wanting to join in the fun, just fill in the registration form or phone 6244 4527 to secure your spot. Bring along family or friends but be quick as this outing is available for the first 45 members.
Tasman Peninsula has some beautiful areas. If you have spare time later in the afternoon try a visit to:
