Rosebery

Rosebery’s mines have been the most productive of any on the West Coast since they began over a hundred years ago.

Rosebery

Rosebery is a zinc and gold mining town in Tasmania’s west that’s situated in a beautiful natural setting.

Nestled deep within a secret valley, Rosebery is dominated by mining and surrounded by a striking landscape of dense forest and the volcanic mountains of the West Coast Range.

It’s a town of contrasts, famous for its beautiful natural setting and harsh mining history – the scenic loop above the town provides spectacular views.

Rosebery is also close to Montezuma Falls – one of Tasmania’s tallest waterfalls. The waterfall can be reached on an interesting walk along an old mining tram line or by four-wheel-drive.

More walks can be had on Mount Read with excellent views of Rosebery and its beautiful surroundings.

Rosebery is a 90-min drive (125 km) south of Burnie.

LOCAL TIPS

  • Play a round of golf on the popular and scenic community-run golf course that features the steepest green in Australia with a par 5 up to the eighth hole and then back down again to the 9th.
  • Keep an eye out for the old Hercules to Rosebery aerial ore bucket ropeway, constructed to move ore from the Hercules mine to Rosebery.
