Hamilton Accommodation

There's an old-school Australian hotel right in the centre of town, but there are plenty more intriguing options. On the eastern side of town, you'll find a Shearer's Quarters which makes for an interesting stay. On the western side of town, you'll find a farm that rents out eco-friendly cottages on the river.

Hamilton is a charming getaway for those looking to explore a bit of Tasmanian countryside and historic charm!


Take a trip to Hamilton where illegal grog bootleggers used to set up shop. This once vibrant frontier town is set against the snow-covered peaks of the Great Western Tiers along the banks of the Clyde River. It's a town steeped in history as an important transportation hub with an abundance of working breweries, hotels and illegal liquor stores. The town's booze has now dried up, but its quaint shops will still bring you back to convict times.

Getting There

Hamilton sits 73 kilometres to Hobart's northwest and the drive will take you a little more than an hour. Launceston is 176 kilometres straight to the north with the drive taking 2 hours and 20 minutes. Devonport is nearly 3 hours away sitting 214 kilometres past Launceston.

Local Tips

Check out the Prospect Villa and Garden. The carefully designed garden has "rooms" that each feature its own design.
