Rathmore was settled in 1828 by Henry Bowden Torlesse and his wife (from Rathmore House in Ireland) when it was set up with all the “appurtenances” of an English Farm. This “sheep walk” was “picturesque, grand and enlivening, differing from those many parts of the Island which appear to have been the work of chance” according to the Colonial Times Hobart 7 Nov 1837.
Rathmore was sold to Richard Allwright whose descendants ran sheep and cattle for the next 150 years. We are now the fortunate custodians of this very special place “far from the madding crowd” but just one hour from Hobart. We are convenient to most parts of Tasmania being located in the stunning Central Highlands Upper Derwent Valley.
Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your root was so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is.
