The Tarkine Interpretation Centre

Athenaeum Hall and Tarkine Interpretation Centre

Visitors to Waratah will appreciate this building’s historic beauty. Built in 1886 and now serving as the Tarkine Interpretation Centre the Athenaeum Hall has an abundance of books, visitor information and interpretive displays about the neighbouring Tarkine rainforest. The hall itself gives an impressive welcome as you step on to the original Tasmanian myrtle floors and look to the larger-than-life mural surrounding the stage.

Entry is by donation. Opening hours are from 10am - 2pm, Thursdays to Saturdays. The centre is closed during the winter period (from April 28 to November 1). Group bookings may be arranged outside these times on 03 6439 7100.
