Maydena is a small village on the banks of the Tyenna River that punches above its weight in its proximity to Tasmania’s finest natural places. Mt Field National Park and the Southwest National Park are just a hop, skip and jump away, and the town is an ideal stop on the way to Lake Pedder and the Gordon Dam. Read on to discover four reasons to make Maydena your base for exploring Tasmania’s spectacular World Heritage wilderness.

Become one with the forest at the Styx Big Tree Reserve
Breathe in that fresh earthy smell and reset the stress levels amongst some of the tallest trees on earth. The stunning rainforest walks wind through towering swamp gums, river and cave systems, glacial lakes and ancient heath groves. Channel the Flintstones and pedal yourself along a historic stretch of railway through the forest. Yabba dabba doo! All that peddling is bound to work up a hunger, so pop into the Maydena Hub Café for some tasty eats and refuel for more exploring.

Go on a quest to find Marriotts Falls
A short drive away, you can find the Marriotts Falls walking track beside the Tyenna River. The short walk is 5km return and is suitable for most fitness levels, passing through groves of fern trees and immense swamp gums. It’s worth cranking your neck to look up – these beauties are the tallest flowering plants on earth.

Visit the Junee Cave State Reserve
Just 5km west of Maydena, nestled amongst lush rainforest, lies the impressive Junee Caves. The Junee River rises to the surface at the cave entrance, after travelling 30km underground through an extensive system of almost 300 caves. This includes Niggly Cave, Australia’s deepest!

Explore Mt Field National Park
Mt Field National Park is a favourite, and boasts a range of beautiful walks, curious wildlife and stunning views. It’s also home to Russell Falls, one of Tasmania’s most popular and most photographed waterfalls (and star of an 1899 Australian postage stamp). The lovely Russell Falls track is just a 20 minute drive from Maydena. Have a bite to eat at Waterfalls Café and Gallery (hot tip: the scones are amazing, and are made from a secret recipe passed down from the previous owners).
