Doo Town - Cities, Towns and Localities


The house which reputedly started the craze, Doo Little.
The house which reputedly started
the craze, Doo Little.

Just a few kilometres southeast of Eaglehawk Neck on route to the dramatic rock formations known as the Tasman Blowhole, Tasman Arch and Devil's Kitchen, is the holiday village of "Doo Town".

Located at the southern end of Pirates Bay, Doo Town dates back to the 1930s, with the naming of the first house which reputedly started the craze... 'Doo Little'. Although there seem to be some dispute over the first house to be named, as Hobart architect Eric Round has been said to have started the tradition when in 1935 he placed a name plate 'Doo I' on his weekender shack in Pirate's Bay.

This is said to be followed by Charles Gibson with Doo-Me' and Bill Eldridge with 'Doo-Us' that continues a tradition even today. Following is a list of houses with 'doo' in their names:

  • Af-2-Doo
  • Didgeri-Doo
