VALLEYS OF TALL TREES

DERWENT VALLEY is famous for its forests, lakes and tall trees. From NEW NORFOLK you are within an hour or less of HOBART, BOTHWELL, OATLANDS, RICHMOND, MAYDENA and the Mt FIELD National Park.

You are within two hours of DERWENT BRIDGE, STRATHGORDON and TARRALEAH.

SIGHTS: The Derwent Valley is a beautiful region of forests, mountains, waterfalls and lakes. However, these attractions are far apart and you need to carefully consider what you are realistically going to see from where you choose to stay. My green road map above should show you the road access problems.

Russell Falls

ACCOMMODATION: NEW NORFOLK is the best location for visiting a number of attractions. There is some accommodation in the hamlets in this region, but note where these places are, as they are quite isolated from each other. Click to see:

ROUTES: The DERWENT VALLEY is the southern part of the Central Mountains area. The area is divided by two separate highways, which both begin at NEW NORFOLK.

The west of the Derwent Valley is dominated by the B61 Gordon River Road, which goes west to Mt FIELD, MAYDENA then on to STRATHGORDON.

The north of the Derwent Valley is dominated by the A10 Lyell Highway. It travels north west to TARRALEAH, then to DERWENT BRIDGE and then on to QUEENSTOWN on the WEST COAST.

Both highways are quite separate in their destinations. Further, the B61 Gordon River Highway is a dead end that has no connections to any other routes.
