Travel Tips from people who've been to Evandale
Not much that I can talk about Evandale. I had a short visit to Evandale with my hostmum, Trindy.She told me lots about everything that I asked.

Evandale is situated on the South Esk River 20 km south of Launceston and a few kilometres beyond Launceston airport. A classified historic town, it is a storehouseof superb heritage buildings which remain in largely original condition.

More unusual inhabitants was a convict named John Kelly who achieved a certain fame and notoriety when his son, Ned, became a successful bushranger.(I guess, there's a movie called Ned Kelly)

The buildings of particular interest in Evandale include the former Presbyterian Manse (1840), a typical colonial building opposite Barclay Street in the town's High Street, 'Blenheim' (1832), a one-time hotel on the southern corner of Barclay and High Street, which was originally known as the 'Patriot King William IV', St Andrews Uniting Church (1840) in the High Street with its classical belltower and Doric columns, and a number of buildings at the intersection of Russell Street and High Street including the Clarendon Stores (1836), an early saddler's shop (1840) and the Prince of Wales Hotel (1836).

Good tip?
