Tasmania's Vanishing Towns

Not What They Used To Be

The history and stories behind Tasmania's ghost towns and disappearing settlements. Town plans, maps, historic photographs.

Tasmania’s Vanishing Towns documents hundreds of towns, villages, ‘places’, communities throughout Tasmania, identified since the release of Vanishing Towns. Some have vanished almost without trace. Others are vanishing albeit slowly. For some the original ‘character’ of the place is vanishing, or has vanished.

Tasmania's Vanishing Towns  provides a fascinating insight into vanished communities, often located in remote areas, where life was harsh beyond out twenty-first century imagination.

Many of these towns have vanished almost completely while others remain as little more than remnants. Some only ever existed on paper.

Each has been included following rigorous examination of the historical record.

Where practical, Michael Holmes has undertaken field visits and consulted with the locals.
