Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Enjoy a walk around the historic Brighton Army Camp, an amazingly rich site with many layers of history and stories. Located near the historic village of Pontville on the Heritage Highway.

Learn about the full history of the site from prior to European settlement up until today. Immerse yourself in an augmented reality experience that brings to life stories from the site and our area, such as Tasmania’s first commercial flights, trade between aboriginal bands, training for WWII, the housing of Italian prisoners of war and refugees from Eastern Europe, a temporary home for Tasmanians who lost their homes in the 1967 bush fires and a refuge for Kosovars escaping the Balkans War.
