This return walk is more than just rolling green hills and friendly horses, it's also rich in local history. Back in 1818, Margate was a convict sawing station. The station operated for around seven years, supplying much of the timber for the early Hobart buildings. The dry stone wall in Davis Flat, a good picnic spot, are believed to be convict built. Margate was also a fruit and hop growing district, and a timber and ship building port.
