Evandale

If you enjoy wandering along the relatively untouched streetscape of a small country town, admiring nineteenth century cottages, grand
homes, vintage horse troughs, statues, where the local traffic includes, utes, fancy cars, and tractors, and surrounded by beautiful countryside and rolling hills, then you will love a stroll around Evandale.

Evandale is a Georgian village south of Launceston and only 5km (3 miles) from Launceston Airport.

The friendly local staff at the Visitor Information Centre can help you plan your stay, and the centre also has displays telling the stories of those early colonial days.

Evandale is the home of the National Penny Farthing Championship, held on the last Saturday of February each year. Crowds flock to see avid cyclists from around the world in skin-hugging lycra race around the town on Penny Farthing bicycles. The festive day includes a series of races, a national championship, endurance and distance rides, and a Village Fair. Plenty of colour with people in costume, music and food.

Evandale is also the home of the Glover Prize held in March each year. One of Australia’s most significant awards for landscape painting. The public can view an exhibition of around 40 finalists.

Evandale’s country market is on every Sunday, with indoor and outdoor stalls, bric-a-brac, antiques, fresh produce and many treasures.

Clarendon House, beautifully set in 7 hectares of park lands and gardens, on the banks of the South Esk River, a stunning historic estate.  You can explore the gardens freely, or take a guided tour of the house.

You can also enjoy Devonshire Tea at the Clarendon Tea House.

Clarendon House is a 5 minute drive south of Evandale. Clarendon House was the centre of a large pastoral enterprise established by James Cox in 1838.  Open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 10am – 4pm. More information is on the Clarendon website.
