Forth definitely ranks as one of the most scenic, as well as one of the oldest towns in Tasmania. Nestled on the banks of River Forth, it is only a 13 kilometre drive from the city of Devonport. The population of just 350 people makes it the kind of town where everyone knows everybody and you will be made to feel extremely welcome. Many of the original buildings have been replaced since settlement, but there is still a strong sense of history about this old town. At the hub of this history is the Historic Bridge Hotel, which is one of the town s oldest buildings and still stands in almost its original form. It was first licensed and opened in 1872, and has managed to retain the old world charm and atmosphere of those times of the past. The building is in fact heritage listed and regarded as a national treasure. It is also regarded as one of Tasmania s leading live music venues. Alternatively, enjoy the organic cafe located next door in the original post office building dating back to 1856.
