Nugent TAS


Postcode: 7172

Nugent is a small rural town in Tasmania, Australia.

It is notable for its local hall, in which many small gatherings occur for the locals only, maybe extending to nearby towns such as Sorell, Buckland and Dodges Ferry. It is a stereotypical “small country town”, an ever shrinking group of small establishments.

The other notable facts about Nugent include the fishery and game hunting property, Redbanks Fish and Field. Redbanks is a renowned wild fishery (the fish grow naturally in the lakes) and pheasant shooting location. People come from Britain, New Zealand, Europe and America to experience world-class pheasant shooting and trout-fishing.

Nugent hosted the Inter-Hash, the world jogging group, in the last five years.
