Renison Bell: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Montezuma Falls


Montezuma Falls, near Rosebery on Tasmania's west coast, is Tasmania's highest waterfall. The track to the falls begins at Williamsford, two kilometres south of Rosebery.
This easy, three-hour return walk along a level track takes you to the base of the 104 metre falls through pleasant park-like rainforest of leatherwood, myrtle, sassafras and giant tree ferns.
You may see native wildlife along the way, including several species of birds. The track follows the historic route of the former North East Dundas Tramway right to the base of Montezuma Falls.
The creek immediately below the falls was once spanned by a wooden trestle bridge, 160 feet long and 50 feet high. Today derelict pieces of timber, moss-covered concrete piers and rusty bolts are the only remains of this bridge.
Facilities at nearby Rosebery include picnic facilities, shops and toilets.
Rosebery is a 90-minute drive south of Burnie.

Rosebery Golf Course


Rosebery Golf Course is a scenic, nine-hole golf course in far west Tasmania. It is located just outside Rosebery, a small mining town surrounded by mountains and rainforest. Rosebery is 90 minutes south west of Burnie (125 kilometres), and 45 minutes north of Queenstown (60 kilometres).
Rosebery Golf Course is set among natural bush and has some lovely views over the surrounding forest and mountains. The course has an interesting layout which winds around the forest and includes some hills. Both the eighth and ninth holes are par five and are played up and then back down a large hill. The eighth hole is a feature - with a narrow tee shot, dog-leg to the left and 250-metre uphill to a two-tiered green surrounded by rainforest. The area has a high rainfall so fairways are usually well grassed and the greens well maintained.
The course is operated by members of the local community with support from the local mining company. Green fees are paid into an honesty box as the course clubhouse is only open for competition mornings and afternoons.
Holes: nine, Par: 72, Length: 5,650 metres, Australian Course Rating: 70

Zeehan Golf Course


The Zeehan Golf Course is a challenging, nine-hole course in western Tasmania. Zeehan is a classified historic town, a two-hour drive south-west of Burnie (155 kilometres) and a 40-minute drive north of Strahan (46 kilometres).
This short but tough Zeehan Golf Course includes three par-three holes and five par-fours. The course has a light coverage of trees and most greens are elevated, increasing your challenge. Green fee guests are welcome; the course does not have hire or club room facilities. The Zeehan Golf Course rewards players with stunning views of surrounding mountains, including Mount Heemskirk. This small, forested mountain was named by explorers Bass and Flinders after a ship used by Abel Tasman during his epic voyage of discovery to Van Dieman's Land in 1642.
In the early 20th century, Zeehan was Tasmania's third largest town, with a population of 10,000 people. You can discover the town's rich mining heritage at the West Coast Pioneer Memorial Museum. Take a walk to see Zeehan's many historic buildings, including the Gaiety Theatre (1899), once Australia's largest concert hall and theatre.
Holes: 9, Par: 68, Length: 4,524 metres, Australian Course Rating: 65.

Wee Georgie Wood Steam Railway


Wee Georgie Wood is a 600mm-gauge (2 feet) 1921 Fowler 0-4-0 tank steam locomotive that operates on the short Farrell Tramway, which opened for operation between the then isolated mining township of Tullah and Farrell Siding, some 9.6 kilometres away on the Emu Bay Railway in 1909.
Wee Georgie Wood was the prime source of motive power for the tramway between 1921 and 1962, when the new Murchison Highway reached Tullah and the original tramway ceased operations.
Most of the original tramway route was inundated by the rising waters of Lake Rosebery. In the 1980s Wee Georgie was rescued and restored to full running order by a group of local enthusiasts and volunteers.

Lake Mackintosh


Lake Mackintosh is five kilometres from Tullah in Tasmania's west and is one of the most beautiful lakes in the region. The lake and surrounding country is magnificent with myrtle, sassafras and eucalypt forests along with native ferns growing almost to the lake's edge.
Like all Hydro Tasmania lakes, Lake Mackintosh is stocked with brown and rainbow trout and a great place to go fishing with several boat ramps available on the lake.
Lake Macintosh is also a terrific place to enjoy a picnic or barbecue on the shore.
There are several easy bush walking tracks around the lake or take a three-hour return walk to the summit of Mt Farrell through lush forest past old mines and through areas of buttongrass. From the summit there are amazing views of Tasmania's wilderness.
You need a licence to fish for trout in Tasmania's lakes. A free brochure - Fishing Code for Anglers - is available from licence-selling agents and the Inland Fisheries Commission.
