Hobart & Launceston Life in the 1960s video - National Film & Sound Archives

The National Film & Sound Archives has released footage, documenting Hobart in 1966 - simply fascinating 20 minute viewing and a must see for one of the periods we love!

The Railway Roundabout, Tasman Bridge, Trolley Buses,homes, cars, highways.....University...drool drool!

There is also a great video released at around the same time in the 1960s of Launceston as well.


  1. Everyone has one great era in their personal lives. Mine was 1963-9.

    Many thanks for the reminder :)

  2. What an amazing film! Check out Life in Australia Melbourne also, it is so funny, following a young couple who are planning to get married, live in a Jennings home and fill it with 60s furniture.
