Heritage building Clarendon House - Evandale

Evandale - A Georgian Village

Transcript

Welcome to Evandale in the north of Tasmania, just 18 km south of Launceston.

Evandale is a National Trust-classified Georgian village. It's like stepping back in time when you visit places like the two St Andrews Churches - one Anglican and one Uniting, the Royal Oak Hotel (1840), Clarendon Arms Hotel (1847), Fallgrove built in 1826, Ingleside Café and Evandale Antiques.

For something saucy, check out the Tasmanian Gourmet Sauce Company where you can see all types of sauces being made. You can even taste them.

And one of our most famous buildings and Australia's greatest colonial house is Clarendon. This place is so great it's even home to the Australian Fly Fishing Museum.

If you're here on a Sunday, Evandale has a market where you can spend hours going through new things, old things, fresh things, almost anything.

But what makes Evandale really famous is the National Penny Farthing Championships. Every February, people from all around the world come down – and you don't need to be on your bike to be having a good time.
