Evandale is a picturesque town on the banks of the South Esk River, in Northern Tasmania. In addition to its National Trust classified Georgian heritage buildings, rural town setting and weekly Sunday markets, Evandale offers visitors annual attractions such as the Glover Prize and the National Penny Farthing Championships. In addition, the nearby Clarendon House (built in 1838 and now owned by the National Trust) is an exceptional example of Georgian architecture, with its accompanying formal gardens and grounds, tree-lined avenue, and restored colonial outbuildings. Visitors to Evandale are recommended to wander through the village, with a Heritage Walk booklet available from the Tourist Information Centre. The High Street in particular is a must-see, which is considered by many to be the most attractive colonial main street in Australia.
