Nile is a small town near to Evandale, in the Northern Midlands of Tasmania. The town contains many historic cottages and homesteads, built from the early 1820s onwards, and some examples of relatively unspoilt, picturesque country roads. Georgian buildings include homesteads such as Strathmore, Old Fordon and Kingston. St Peters Church and School, originally used as a schoolhouse during the week and chapel on Sundays, was built in the 1950s. Its associated cemetery is situated overlooking the Nile River. Just 4km outside Nile is Clarendon, a National Trust property, which is composed of a house (built in 1836), stables and other outbuildings, and gardens. The house is considered to be architecturally significant, with its two-storey Georgian Regency style and decorative facade and giant portico columns.
