Hobart Suburbs Template
While this may be true, is it likely to be absorbed into Hobart anytime soon? I ask because i see both Bridgewater and Kingston have been absorbed (I realise they're closer), despite being seperate in the ABS stats as late as 2004. Davo499 (talk) 13:23, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
New Norfolk is not part of a council
It is not possible for a town to be part of a council. A council in Tasmania is an elected body of people. The town is part of the municipality that the council governs, in this case the Municpality of Derwent Valley. I think this should be changed. Phaedrus86 10:29, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
- I withdraw my objection. This issue has been resolved by Chuq - see Talk:Derwent Valley Council#Council is not an area. Phaedrus86 06:56, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
Lt Gov David Collins relevance?
I'm removing the following two paragraphs from the article for the moment because there's no stated or apparent connection (i.e. the information, in its current state, appears to be irrelevant) between Lt Gov David Collins and New Norfolk.
Resettlement of Norfolk Islanders
He was transferred back to England to be later appointed leader of the expedition to form the settlement near Bass Strait which today is Tasmania. Collins named the district "The Hills" and selected the fertile valley as a separate crop production area for the colony."
The matter of which is the oldest pub in Australia is contentious, and a consensus has not been publicly reached yet. I think the best idea would be to discuss this 'highly' controversal topic here: Talk:Australian_pub#Oldest_pub
- Read the context - it does not say it is the oldest, it says it is the oldest continously licenced - see the plaque at http://www.australianbeers.com/pubs/bushin/bush.htm. Andreclos (talk) 00:06, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
