Tasmania was named Van Diemen's Land by the Dutch explorer Abel Tasman in 1642. The island was settled by the British as a penal colony in 1803 and the name was changed to Tasmania when convict transportation stopped in 1853. Tasmania has preserved a rich legacy of heritage, including Australia's oldest continuously operating theatre, the Theatre Royal in Hobart; the country's first Jewish synagogue, still in use in Hobart; and its oldest golf course, in the town of Bothwell. The nation's oldest bridge and church are at Richmond, and on the corner of Murray and Macquarie streets in Hobart, the only remaining Georgian intersection in the country. Many colonial dwellings are in use as private homes or tourist accommodation.
