San Remo Wattle bark

"John Griffith was a Tasmanian merchant who specialised in whaling and sealing. His ship 'Elizabeth' was the first to harvest wattle bark from the local trees in 1834. During the 1840s, after the collapse of the wattle bark industry, the port grew due to the local timber and farming industries."
