Clarence

Description

Clarence is a district in southern Tasmania, encompassing the towns or villages of Bellerive (formerly Kangaroo Point), Howrah, Rosny, Lindisfarne, and Rokeby. By the early 1820s a small village was growing around Kangaroo Point, that was soon to become Bellerive, making it the first site of permanent settlement in Clarence Plains. Bellerive was well fed by a freshwater stream that emptied into Kangaroo Bay, and it still exists running parallel to Rosny Park Public Golf Course as a storm water culvert. The next areas within Clarence Plains to be settled on the eastern shore of Hobart's Derwent River, were Rosny, and its neighbours Montagu Bay and Lindisfarne to the north. Source: Wikipedia
