"Home of the First European Woman in Australia"

Magra is loacted 27 kms north west of Hobart on the upper eastern reaches of the Derwent River. It is just north of New Norfolk. It is mainly an agricultural area but there is also a significant tourist interest in the area so there is plenty of accommodation available. The surrounding hills are covered in Lombardy Poplars which gives the area a certain appeal. The grave site of the first white woman to set foot on Australian soil, Betty King, is located not far from Magra.
