COLEBROOK

Colebrook

Colebrook is a quiet little farming settlement, originally named Jerusalem, which was developed by convict labour as the site of a convict probation station. By 1806, expeditions of soldiers were being sent to the area to kill kangaroos and emus due to serious food shortages in Hobart Town.

Today, the farmlands are rich and diverse, with occupants largely farming the lands for generations.

Take a walk through the village of Colebrook and visit the old Jerusalem Probation Station, St James’ Anglican Church, with its beautiful stain glass windows, and another highlight is St Patrick’s Catholic Church designed by Augustus Welby Pugin.

Standing on a dramatic hillside above the village, St Patrick’s is a magnet for architecture historians and history lovers. The designer Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin was so talented that his series of books irrevocably altered the course of nineteenth century architecture and design. For more information on Pugin, visit www.puginfoundation.org/colebrook.
