New Norfolk – two fabulous centuries (3)

NEW Norfolk, as a healthy place of residence, has been highly, and perhaps, not undeservedly extolled: but, in winter, from the dense and excessive fogs, it is too much charged with humidity to be salubrious: at other seasons, however, we know of no place in the Island, where the invalid can repose with so much satisfaction and enjoyment—it is, indeed, a most delightful and most invigorating place.

From Henry Melville’s Hobart Town Magazine, Volume III, page 24, 1834

The above image titled View of the Governor’s retreat, New Norfolk, Van Diemens Land by Joseph Lycett was first published in Views in Australia, or, New South Wales & Van Diemen’s Land, in 1825.
