  1. Kentish Council

    The Kentish Council is a local government area of Tasmania. It is located in the north-west of the state, slightly inland from the coast. The area was explored by the surveyor Nathaniel Kentish in 1842 who was given the task of finding a route from Deloraine through to Tasmania's north west coast. Kentish's last name has remained as the name of the area. The major towns of the municipality are Sheffield, Railton and Wilmot. The area is a high tourism region, with the natural attractions of Cradle Mountain and Lake Barrington, and the murals within the town of Sheffield very popular with visitors.
