Heritage & Arts

Queenstown Recreation Ground


Wilsdon Street, Queenstown


In Queenstown, our footy players play on a gravel oval, not grass. It’s not for the faint of heart.

Built in 1895 the ground has been called the most infamous and feared football field in Australia.  The "Gravel" was inducted into the Tasmanian Football Hall of Fame in 2007.

Free souvenirs for the ‘away’ team include skinned knees and gravel scars.
