Derby

  • Derby is a small riverside town north-east of Launceston. This classified historic town is surrounded by mountains, rainforests and old tin mines. Once a booming mining settlement, Derby still has the feel of a pioneer town with quaint shops selling antiques, second hand books and modern crafts. It's also becoming a centre for world-class mountain biking. In the late 1800s it was a booming mining settlement and the Derby Tin Mine Centre tells of the town's early days when it was the setting for an epic tin rush that saw thousands of miners flock to the area.
