The history of Kumara.

Kumara s rich and vibrant history is interwoven with Tasmania ’s colonial life throughout the 1800s. It was built c1830 by Mrs. Ann Bridger of “Bush Inn” Hotel fame (our western neighbour), and operated as the educational establishment “Clifton House” Commercial Academy. New Norfolk ’s council clerk, William Cahill, used it as his private residence from the early 1870s until his death in 1897. For the first two decades of the 1900s it was home to Dr. Frank Allwork and his family, and it was at this point that the premises became known as “Kumara”. During the 1920s, local baker Jim Fuller and his family rented the property from local butcher and businessman Walter Sherrin, prior to its sale to a member of the well-known Cowburn family in 1943. From the early 1950s until late 2019 it operated once again as a medical practice with rental accommodation on the re - constructed top level.
