Wellington District

The Wellington District came into existence in 2004 due to the rationalisation of districts. It is a combination of the previous Glenorchy and Hobart districts as which have their previous histories listed below.

Glenorchy is part of the Southern Region. The present badge came into being in 1968 when the old Glenorchy - Norfolk District was divided up into Glenorchy, Glenorchy North and Derwent Valley. Within five years the latter two Districts had disappeared and Glenorchy District today covers the same area Glenorchy - Norfolk did 25 years ago.

The upper part of the badge represents a city skyline of Glenorchy. The green area represents the parks of the city. the lower section with the blue "ripples" represents the Derwent River which forms the boundary to the north of the District.

Hobart District, in the Southern Region, covers the centre of the city of Hobart.

From the original Hobart & Clarence District of the '40s & '50s, the metropolitan area was divided into:

  • Wellington in the central city area
  • Nelson covering the suburbs south of Wellington
  • Glenorchy
  • Norfolk covering the suburbs north of Wellington
  • Bowen covering the Eastern Shore.

The Wellington Badge showed the profile of Mt. Wellington. When Nelson District was disbanded in the early 1970s the District name changed to Hobart, but the badge remained rectangular with the mountain profile on it.

This badge, introduced in the 1980s is the only Tasmanian badge which is not rectangular or square. The back right is Mt. Wellington, while back left is Mt. Nelson with its convict era semaphore station mast. Front right is the Tasman Bridge, linking the District to Clarence.
