South Mount Cameron: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Moorina Golf Club


Moorina Golf Club offers a nine-hole course in the far north-eastern region of Tasmania.
The well-maintained course (par 70) is located in a delightful setting surrounded by bushland. There is a putting green as well as a bar and kitchen in the club house. The course is reasonably flat, with only one hilly section. Moorina Golf Club is open to the public each day. It is difficult for visitors to miss with the Tasman Highway running through the course.
While you are in the North East, you may like to visit Bridestowe Lavender Farm, the largest lavender farm in the southern hemisphere. You can also follow the Tasman Highway from Moorina through to St Helens on Tasmania's East Coast. Here you will find stunning beaches and excellent fishing opportunities. Cast a line from the rocks or try your hand at deep sea fishing with a guide. Hire a bike and make your way down to Binalong Bay where the turquoise water will beckon you to swim. For excellent bushwalking, head to the Bay of Fires or stop by the east coast wineries and sample some fine Tasmanian wine.
Moorina is approximately a 90-minute drive (110 km) from Launceston.

Mt William National Park


Mt William National Park on Tasmania's north-east coast has long beaches and is an ideal place to see a variety of abundant wildlife.
Keep an eye out for the large Tasmanian Forester kangaroo as well as the more common Bennetts wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons and wombats. You may even spot a Tasmanian devil or two and in the summer you're likely to see echidnas foraging for ants.
A walk along the pristine empty beaches will captivate you with more than 100 species of birdlife. In the coastal heaths are several species of honeyeaters including the tawny-crowned and crescent honeyeater. Other heathland species include the superb blue wren, firetail finch and the kookaburra.
There are camping areas, shelters and gas barbecues at Stumpys Bay in the north and also near Eddystone Point in the south.
Access to the southern end of the park and Eddystone Lighthouse is via the unsealed road to Ansons Bay.
Mt William National Park is around a two-hour drive north-east of Launceston.

Tin Dragon Interpretation Centre


The Tin Dragon Interpretation Centre is located in Derby, North East Tasmania.
A billion litres of water with nowhere to go. Experience the power and the fury of water in the epic story of Tasmania's Tin Rush and the miners, European and Chinese, who sought their fortune from this remarkable metal.
The Briseis Mine, in its heyday, became the world's largest exporter of tin ore, but in 1929 severe weather caused a dam burst of massive proportions wreaking devastation upon the township of Derby in a fury of flooding so huge it caused the river to reverse its flow for five miles upstream. Everyday items and personal treasures swept aside now stand as quiet but stark monuments to the personal losses of those hard working men and their families.
From viewing platforms gaze and marvel at the effect upon the landscape of the sheer hard manual grind taken to pull the metal from the earth and natures violent and revenge.
Outside the Tin Dragon Centre, a bronze sculpture stands poignantly in silent monument to those whose lives were lost in this sudden and terrible disaster.
