Taranna, Tasmania


Taranna is located in the Hobart region of Tasmania.  Resort area of bays, beaches and headlands. Small townships of Opossum Bay, South Arm, Sandford and Lauderdale attract hundreds of visitors on summer weekends. Muttonbird rookeries flourish off Goat Bluff and other headlands. The few points of high land offer a selection of outlooks across the Derwent, down Storm Bay or across to the Tasman Peninsula.  Terminus for Australia’s first railway. A 7km tramway was built to Long Bay, at the head of Port Arthur, to carry passengers and supplies and avoid the rough sea trip around Cape Raoul. Remains of the earthworks are near the Long Bay jetty.
