  • As Chairman of the National Trust I want to encourage you to experience the rich history and architecture of Runnymede. Originally constructed in the mid 1830s by Robert Pitcairn who was a leading advocate in Hobart and who's bust graces the entry to the Supreme Court to this day. It then became the home of the Nixon family, in the 1850s, Nixon being the first Anglican Bishop in Tasmania. Subsequently it became the base for the Bayley family - late 19th Century whalers. Today it provides a wide range of maritime themes related to whaling and through the Trust's relationship with the Sea Shepherd organisation a small museum to today's protectors of these magnificent mammals.
