Artist's Description

Bell’s Parade is situated on the banks of the Mersey River at Latrobe, Tasmania.
The town grew up because Latrobe was the first convenient point, from the mouth of the river, where the Mersey River could be crossed. Ferries came up the river to the town and the site now known as Bells Parade (on River Road from East Devonport before you reach the town) was where the town’s docks were once located. Today it is a pleasant and particularly beautiful picnic ground. The English trees in the area give it a certain European feel of softness and languor. A small bridge leads across the river to Pig Island.

Bells Parade was named after Robert Bell who established a wharf and store on the river bank in 1855.

The township of Latrobe was formally named in 1846 after Charles Joseph La Trobe (1801-75), who, at the time was acting Lieutenant-Governor of Van Diemen’s Land (1846-47).
It is also the ‘home’ of the Axeman’s Hall of Fame & the wonderful Platypus.
