As you enter our Lady Franklin room the first thing that will catch your eye is the lovely painting of sailboats. This soft and tranquil room is equipped with a comfy queen bed, built-in cupboards, tea and coffee making facilities, a flat screen tv and ensuite. Lady Jane Franklin for whom the room is named was the wife of John Franklin, who was appointed lieutenant-governor of Van Diemen's Land in 1836. Lady Franklin was an enthusiastic traveller among other things too many to mention. She was the first white woman to climb Mount Wellington and to travel overland from Melbourne to Sydney and from Hobart to Macquarie Harbour. In her old age she visited the United States of America, Hawaii, Japan, and India. We highly recommend investing some time to research this feisty lady of Tasmanian history.
