Queenstown

Queenstown is renowned for its remarkable mining heritage. The discovery of gold and copper deposits led to the opening of vast operations of the Mt Lyell Mining & Railway Company. The bare hills of Queenstown remain an incredible sight, and the town contains some iconic buildings.

Strahan

A visit to Strahan is an iconic Tasmanian experience. Strahan's main street is an attractive terrace of nineteenth-century buildings facing the majestic waters of Macquarie harbour. For the greater part of the year, Strahan is the place to be seen and abuzz with tourism activity.

Zeehan

Named after Abel Tasman’s brig, Zeehan was once Tasmania's third largest town and known as the "Silver City" in its mining glory days! Today, Zeehan is the gateway to popular fishing locations, you can visit Zeehan's great shops and the original port, Trial Harbour.

Rosebery

Rosebery, at the foot of Mount Black, is an active zinc mining town, with an estimated yield of 8 billion dollars since mining began over a century ago. Rosebery lays claim to the “highest” postcode in Tasmania and Australia’s steepest golf course. Rosebery is also home to Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls! A visit to the falls makes a great local trip, accessed by walking along the old tram route, self drive, or 4 wheel drive tour.

Tullah

On the shores of peaceful Lake Rosebery, Tullah sits beneath Mt Farrell. The "Wee Georgie Wood" steam locomotive re-enacts the journey to Tullah via the Emu Bay Railway siding and is a popular tourist attraction. You’re always assured of a warm welcome in Tullah.

Waratah

Waratah is a small, scenic town on the edge of the Tarkine wilderness with a rich mining past, a magnificent town-side waterfall, and a unique lakeside setting. Enjoy a picnic by the waterfall, marvel at the scenery, go platypus spotting, or stroll around the lake – it’s one of the local West Coast highlights!

Support local jobs and businesses and help make the West a great destination.
