Trial Harbour township came into being in the 1880’s as the port that served Zeehan. It’s original name was ‘Remine’ which was the native name for the plant Blandfordia which grows all around the area. The name ‘Trial Harbour originates from a small vessel called ‘Trial’ that arrived, carrying the new manager of the nearby Montagu Mine. Overnight the Trial was blown up onto the beach during a gale and shortly after Mr George Davies of the Hobart Mercury newspaper arrived. He asked the name of the boat on the beach and raised his glass with the toast “Here’s to the health of Trial Harbour” and thus the name came into being on March 10th 1881.
