Bischoff Hotel in Waratah
The historic Bischoff Hotel is an Edwardian-style grand-dame overlooking a stunning waterfall in Waratah. It was built in 1902 from stone and Huon pine.
This town boasted the richest tin mine[Mt. Bischoff] in the world during the late 1800's up to 1947. It was possibly the key to Tasmania remaining a viable state after the cessation of convict deportation.
Today the hotel still provides accommodation, meals and cold beers to thirsty travelers on Tasmania's wild west coast - a haven for motorcyclists, bushwalkers, golfers, fisherman or stressed out mainlanders.
Ed: Possibly the first Pub in Tasmania to be lit by Hydroelectric Power??
