Mathers House

Following a sold-out breakthrough season in 2022, don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about palawa (Tasmanian Aboriginal) history and our city.
Created by award-winning Palawa and Walpiri woman Nunami Sculthorpe-Green, this powerful tour gives voice to the palawa perspective and continued presence within this modern city, exposing the layers of history beneath the asphalt.
The walk follows the route taken in 1832 by members of the Aboriginal resistance, retracing their steps as they progressed to the old Government House to negotiate an end to the Black War. As the only Aboriginal-led tour of Nipaluna/Hobart, this is a must-do experience.
