A Living Piece of History
The Huon Valley region plays a vital part in the history of the area. Our cottage overlooks the beautiful Castle Forbes Bay which you will see every time you look out the window. The bay is named after a ship that was originally intended to be used for trade but eventually became used for convict transportation to Australia. The vessel was launched in 1818 and named after a historic castle in Aberdeenshire.
In 1836, the ship was on a voyage to ferry free Irish immigrants to Hobart. The ship mistakenly travelled up the Huon River. When it became impossible to travel any further because of rapids and the ship’s draft, the travellers decided to make Castle Forbes Bay their home. As the years went by, Castle Forbes Bay developed into apple orchards and soon earned the nickname of “The Apple Isle”.
