Derwent Bridge

If you want to get to the heart of Tasmania it doesn’t get much more “geographically central” than Derwent Bridge. In the middle of Tassie, you’ll find some interesting folk and some breathtaking wilderness on the town”s doorstep.

Just 10 minutes’ drive away is Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake and end point of the well-known Overland Track. The lake is located at the southern end of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Hop on the ferry and take a walk in fjord-like surrounds by the lakeside through giant Myrtle forest or climb one of the peaks. With Mount Rufus, Mount Hugel and Mount King William rising up from the wild surrounds, you’re spoilt for choice. Those who enjoy trout fishing should head for nearby Lake King William.

If you like the idea of living art, stop in at the Wall in the Wilderness. This Huon pine-panelled sculpture by Greg Duncan depicts the inspirational stories of those who have shaped the Central Highlands region. Greg begins his tale with the indigenous people and moves through to timber harvesters, pastoralists, miners and Hydro workers. Once completed, the wall will be 100 metres in length.

Located halfway between Hobart and Strahan, Derwent Bridge is a great little stopping point en route to the west coast. The drive from Hobart takes around 2.5 hours and there are several accommodation options including self-contained chalets, backpacker options and hotel-style lodging. The Tasmanian tiger once roamed these parts, so keep an eye out.

Highlights not to miss

  • Visit the Wall in the Wilderness
  • Take a cruise on Lake St Clair
  • Go trout fishing at Lake King William
  • Walk the Mount Rufus circuit
