In Hobart's early history, Sandy Bay was a half-mile stretch of orchards and gardens. Plans to develop a spa-hotel in the 1880s at Lower Sandy Bay were never realized due to lack of funds but there was a renowned hotel at Wrest Point before the casino, the first in Australia, was built. Last century it was a traditional family outing to ride a tram and picnic on Long Beach. Today the Derwent River races, shopping and the beaches offer different entertainment.
