"Nellie Melba Sang Here"

New Norfolk was established to house convicts transferred from Norfolk Island – hence the name. It is less than an hour out of Hobart, and for travellers heading to the Wilderness areas, it is well worth pulling off the main road to take a look. The oldest Anglican Church in Tasmania is here, along with a hotel that boasts that Dame Nellie Melba staged an impromptu concert from the balcony on day, for the residents! There are some quaint bed and breakfasts here, and the homes are delightful, with lots of rose gardens. New Norfolk is also home to the innovative nursing home, built in the style of an Oast House, familiar landmarks in the near countryside.
