Hamiltons of the World

The inspiration for this book came from the Hamilton East Rotary Club, in New Zealand, devising a fundraiser.

Eventually 120 Hamiltons across the world were discovered and listed, with Hamilton, in Tasmania’s Central Highlands, the oldest in Australia, founded in 1824.

The fully illustrated hard back book is available from Hamilton Heritage Centre, Tarleton Street, Hamilton, Tasmania, or the Rotary Club of Hamilton East, New Zealand.
