Evandale is a small town in northern Tasmania, Australia. It sits on the banks of the South Esk River 18 km south of Launceston. A classified historic town, many of its buildings remain largely in original condition. It is famous for a popular Sunday market and as host to the annual World Penny Farthing bicycle Championships. At the 2006 census, Evandale had a population of 1,059.There is a primary school, churches, parks, pubs, shops and a fire station. Nearby locations include Nile, Deddington and Perth.HistoryAboriginal inhabitants of the Evandale areaThe first inhabitants of the present site of Evandale were Tasmanian Aborigines . The site lies at the interface of country originally belonging to the Ben Lomond and North Midlands Nations . The ethnographic record in regards to aboriginal populations in the North Midlands of Tasmania is scanty, as many of the original inhabitants were displaced or did not survive the first colonial occupation of the South Esk Valley in the early 1800s. However, archeological remains of Palawa campsites and artifacts existed on the river flats just below the present site of Evandale and also at Native Point, 2 km downstream, which was a known 'resort of the natives'. The Evandale region also appears to have encompassed an aboriginal route from the Tamar Valley to the Lake River and it is likely that this area was a hunting ground and meeting point for local clans of the North Midlands Nation.
