Bangor is a beautiful farming property that is managed for its' stunning natural environment.  Located on the Forestier Peninsula in Tasmania's south east, Bangor has over 35 km of breathtaking coastline and 5100 hectares of native forests.  These precious forests are home to a large number of birds and animals, including some of Tasmania's most iconic species such as the wedge-tailed eagle, and the Tasmanian Devil.

Bangor and the Forestier Peninsula also have a long and proud cultural history, from the original inhabitants the Tasmanian Aborigines, to the first European explorers visiting Bangor's shores in 1642, to whaling in Lagoon Bay in the 1830's and the development of farming land to supply food to the convict settlement of Port Arthur.  In the 1890's and early 1900's Bangor was purchased by the Dunbabin family, and remains in the family to this day.

This website provides information on our farming operations, our extensive environmental management programme, and the fascinating history of both the property and the Dunbabin family in Tasmania.  You will also find a collection of stunning images of the property taken by Matt.

Our news post below, and our Facebook page, keep you up to date with what is happening at Bangor.
