It is fortunate that, for various reasons, buildings of each historic phase remain. Tasmania's rich heritage is not confined to Hobart and Launceston. Richmond, Ross, Evandale, Latrobe, Hamilton and Oatlands are particularly noted for their fine collections of historic architecture. But there is hardly a town without its examples of early timber houses and shops, Georgian, Regency, Federation, Victorian Revival and Italianate 'wedding cake' styles (especially in church and civic buildings and the large houses of the rich) and fine examples of 1930s houses and cinemas - the 'ocean liner' style.
