Thankyou Tony We are so pleased that you visited and found our caretakers and our interpretation useful. Bruny has lots of unsaved roads and your advice of driving slower is valuable to the uninitiated. Cheers Rob

Thankyou for you review. Recent research indicates that it is possible that some Tasmanian animal quarantine may have happened on Middle Island on the Tamar River...and we are constantly looking into our diverse history.

The volunteers have done a tremendous job in presenting the history of the quarantine station to visitors. It is interesting and surprising to learn about the different uses of the station over the years. The self guided tour is informative and easy to follow.
