Places nearby Rosebery


Roseberry is a small zinc and gold mining town in Tasmania's West. The zinc mine dominates the small townscape, yet the surrounding rainforest and hills give Rosebery an unexpected visual appeal.
Rosebery's Hercules mine has produced more wealth than any other mine on the West Coast yielding copper, gold, lead, zinc and silver with an estimated value of $8 billion.
Nearby is Montezuma Falls, Tasmania's highest waterfall (113 metres). The start of the track to the falls is just a 10-min drive from town. The easy, 3-hr return walk follows an old tram route or alternatively, you can travel in comfort on a four-wheel-drive tour.
Also of interest is the Hercules to Rosebery Aerial Ore Bucket Ropeway. This elaborate aerial ore ropeway was constructed to move ore from the Hercules mine to Rosebery and continued to operate until 1986. It has since collapsed, however you can still see the remnants of this highly unusual method of ore transportation south of the town.
Nearby to Rosebery, you'll find good walking on Mount Read. The route starts from a Telecom road about 1 km south of the town and offers excellent views over Rosebery; on a clear day it's possible to see as far as Macquarie Harbour in the south.
Roseberry is a 4-hr drive (314 km) from Hobart and a 2 hr 50-min drive (201 km) from Launceston.


Rosebery: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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

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.

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.
