Bells Parade and Pig IslandBells Parade, Latrobe
Picturesque Bell’s Parade is situated on the Latrobe inlet of the Mersey River. It is named after Robert Bell, who with his half brother Henry Bentinck constructed a wharf and a store on the site in 1855.
From the 1880s it was the main port on the river, becoming northern Tasmania’s second major trading port for a period.
Old English trees on the Parade add visual splendour to the tranquillity and the barbecue facilities make it an ideal location for a picnic. It is also a popular spot during the warmer months for wedding ceremonies and photo opportunities.
Pig Island lies adjacent to Bells Parade and is a wonderful location to view platypus and the regions water based wildlife.Phone: 03 6426 4444
