Plein air painting from the Tamar Island Wetlands conservation area, near Launceston, Tasmania. There are many exotic birds around the island, and it was very windy on top of this hill which made it difficult to paint. During the 1890s there was a growth in interest in Tamar Island as a picnic spot. To give the island a more park-like atmosphere, the hill on Tamar Island was planted with a variety of exotic species, including spruce, fir, pine and oak. The tree in the foreground is one of these trees.
The area around the Tamar Estuary was first occupied by various bands of Aboriginal people, who were later called The Northern Midlands Tribe by the Europeans who had moved into the valley and taken the Aborigines land.
