Just past Eaglehawk Neck, in the Tasman National Park is the holiday village of Doo Town.
In 1935, Hobart architect Eric Round started a tradition when he named his shack ‘Doo I’. The idea soon caught on with Doo-Me and Doo-Us and today most of the town’s shacks have ‘Doo’ names.
The funny shack-naming tradition provides a good laugh and plenty of photo opportunities.
The homes have all been named in the ‘Doo’ theme: Gunadoo, Doodle Doo, Love Me Doo, Doo Us, Doo Me, Doo Nix, Wee Doo, Xanadu, Rum Doo and the house which reputedly started it all, Doo Little – a suitable name for a holiday home.
