Tasmania Part 6: Industry

The last few posts might have painted Hobart and surrounds as a conservationist’s paradise, where hardly anything has been touched by human hands. Not so much. Hobart had some diverse economic activity going on, and we saw lots of it!

    It’s called Port Latta. The pier is 1.8km long. They make iron ore pellets in a plant and then put them on a conveyor belt that runs along the pier to the ship. It’s pretty amazing. It’s on the north coast of Tassie just east of Stanley.
