THE KILN: A HISTORIC GEM IN THE HUON VALLEY

Introducing The Kiln in Ranelagh, Tasmania - a historic building with a fascinating past. Originally owned by transported convict Thomas Jabez Amesbury Frankcomb, the property has since been passed down through generations of the Frankcomb family. Today, The Kiln is owned by the Holmes family who aim to transform this slice of history into a world class destination.

In the early 1900s, Thomas' son, also named Thomas Amesbury Frankcomb, planted hops along the banks of the Mountain River and converted the wooden barn into a hop kiln to dry the hops. The kiln, which eventually switched from coal to oil firing, was instrumental in the success of the Frankcomb family's hop farm during World War II.

The Kiln is not only a symbol of Tasmania's agricultural heritage but also a popular tourist attraction. Come and immerse yourself in the history of this unique location in the Huon Valley.
