FactsStreet sign

Home of the first golf course in Australia. Ratho was laid in the early 1830s just 10 years after the area was settled. The district is known for fine wool farming, being the gateway to the Central Highlands and its 19th century buildings. Street signs depict various tartan designs reflecting it Scottish heritage. The annual wool "spin-in" is a popular biennial tourist event held in March, the next event being in 2015. The Tasmanian (Bothwell) tartan representing the colours found in the Tasmanian bush was designed by local residents.

Distance from Hobart: 73 kms, about 1 hours drive.
