A PRISTINE WILDERNESS

CENTRAL MOUNTAINS Region of Tasmania is really three distinct regions, which are only tenuously connected by roads, as you can see in the above map.

Driving times between these areas is difficult and long, so you will need to make an early decision about what you are going to see. The three towns and hamlets that dominate access are: MOLE CREEK, SHEFFIELD and DERWENT BRIDGE.

From MOLE CREEK you are 30 minutes from SHEFFIELD, DEVILS GULLET, Mt JERUSALEM and DELORAINE.

You are one hour from LAUNCESTON and DEVONPORT. You are 90 minutes from CRADLE MOUNTAIN and 3 hours from HOBART.

From SHEFFIELD you are only 20 minutes from DEVONPORT. You only 30 minutes from MOLE CREEK, DELORAINE, ULVERSTONE and WESTBURY. You are 60 minutes from LAUNCESTON, CRADLE MOUNTAIN, Mt JERUSALEM. and BURNIE. You are a very long 4 hours from HOBART from Sheffield.

From DERWENT BRIDGE you are 30 minutes from FRENCHMANS CAP and TARRALEAH. You are one hour from WADDAMANA and the GREAT LAKE. You are 90 minutes from QUEENSTOWN and NEW NORFOLK. You are 2 hours from HOBART and 3 hours from DEVONPORT.


View Region Central Mountains of Tasmania in a larger map

SIGHTS: The Central Mountains region covers central Tasmania. It includes the World Heritage listed areas of CRADLE MOUNTAIN, Mt BARN BLUFF, LAKE St CLAIR, the LABYRINTH and the WALLS of JERUSALEM national parks. These areas draws tourists from around the world. Some of the sights include:

Cradle Mountain, Tasmania

ACCOMMODATION: The Central Mountains area is not a single area in terms of roads. If you are located in the north, then you won't be easily able to access the South and vice versa. Note that WADDAMANA, TARRALEAH and DERWENT BRIDGE are in the South, while the other accommodation places: CRADLE MOUNTAIN, DELORAINE, GREAT LAKE, MOLE CREEK and SHEFFIELD are in the North.

ROUTES: The Central Mountains area is really three separate regions which are accessed from different directions, as you can see on my green map above. Do not expect to see different attractions in the north, south and east on the same day.
