After hours please phone (0428) 741 909. Hamilton was once a busy frontier town containing many hotels and several working breweries. Today it has only a few small shops and buildings, such as the courthouse, many of them dating back to convict times. It is a great stop if you are taking your time to travel from the West Coast of Tassie to Hobart, or vice versa.
