In the heart of Tasmania,
the small town of Geeveston wears its history proudly.
Marked by William Geeves’ early struggle
to settle the dense bushland,
this humble settlement’s growth is etched
in the timber mills’ sawdust
and the spark of the first electrical current.
The permanence of the past is on display at Cambridge House,
a tribute to its industrious roots
and its evolution into a community hub.
Birthed amidst struggle,
nurtured by apple and timber industries,
and revitalized through television tourism,
Geeveston remains resilient.
Cambridge House, built by John Geeves in 1868,
still stands as a testament to Geeveston’s past,
present and future.
