The Friends of Willow Court and the Derwent Valley Council are each putting a submission into the Legislative Council’s Inquiry into Built Heritage Tourism in Tasmania. I think that Australia’s oldest Asylum that had run continuously on the same location deserves the utmost priority from our elected leaders. So we need to keep this in front of Governments so this great site can go beyond stage one conservation.
In other news for Willow Court, Associate Professor Heather Burke and a group of ten students from Flinders University arrived last Friday and are working around Willow Court this week. Access to the site is still unavailable.
