General Meeting - Suzanne Smythe "History of the Iron Pot"
The iron Pot Lighthouse, or more formally the Derwent Light has been part of the Port of Hobart for 192 years. Suzanne has made an extensive study of its history and written a book on the topic. It is the oldest existing lighthouse tower in Australia.
Standing at the entrance to the Derwent, it marks the start of the Port of Hobart and is a welcome sight to yachtsmen in the Sydney to Hobart race. Its history is also a history of the development of the maritime industry and the water-based activities of Tasmania.
