About the region
Fingal is one of those small Tasmanian towns where the charm lies in simply stopping and walking along the main street. There are a number of Victorian-era buildings and a quiet peacefulness. To the north are the Mathinna Falls Forest Reserve and the Evercreech Forest Reserve. This is a particularly pretty area of the east coast. The noted poet, James McAuley lived in the area and wrote romantically about "The blonding summer grasses / The stubble-fields, the green, / The sheep in pools in shadow, / Mauve thistledown between." in his poem 'Fingal Valley'. A reminder that the ambience of the district is decidedly Northern European.
