It is recorded in the archives of the Hobart Nomenclature Board that Badger Head, on the West side of the Tamar River in Northern Tasmania, was named after Charlotte Badger, a woman convict who escaped from a cargo ship "The Venus", which was anchored at the entrance of Port Dalrymple in 1806.

Badger Head came into prominence in 1838 when a track through the Asbestos Range became the first outlet to the west from the river Tamar after the early settlement at York Town.
