Derby is a small riverside town north-east of Launceston. This classified historic town is surrounded by mountains, rainforests and old tin mines. Once a booming mining settlement, Derby still has the feel of a pioneer town with quaint shops selling antiques, second hand books and modern crafts. It's also becoming a centre for world-class mountain biking.
In the late 1800s it was a booming mining settlement and the Derby Tin Mine Centre tells of the town's early days when it was the setting for an epic tin rush that saw thousands of miners flock to the area.
Discover for yourself that Blue Lake really is blue; take a long walk or paddle a canoe on Cascade Dam to sharpen your appetite for a homemade afternoon tea in one of Derby's cafes.
And in October each year, you can enjoy the madcap Derby River Derby - a river race with very different rules.
Derby is also gaining recognition for its world-class mountain biking with extensive and challenging trails through beautiful forests extending from within the town itself. The North East Mountain Bike project has already delivered 20 km of purpose built single-track for mountain biking in the hills behind Derby, known as the Blue Derby trails. When the trail network is completed, there will be 100 km of track, putting Derby firmly in the world's mountain biking spotlight.
Accommodation is available at hotels, cottages and campsites.
Derby is a 1 hr 20 min drive from Launceston or a 1 hr drive from St Helens.
