The Hunter's Wharf and Hunter's Street Historic Precinct
Hobart's Hunter’s Street Wharf Precinct Historic Content Summary
The Hunter’s Street Wharf Precinct is a historically rich area which is dense in content that creates links between the very beginnings of British settlement at Hobart and its spread out into the rest of Tasmania. This work will summarise the history of the Hunter’s Wharf precinct from the arrival of Lt Governor Collins, when the wharf was still on Hunters Island, through to the present day. Because of the vast amount of historic material that exists concerning this precinct and the time and size constraints required of this work I will endeavour to summarise that material so will have to overlook a significant body of interesting historic material.
