Derby is an historic Tasmanian mining town on the banks of the Ringarooma River in the north east of Tasmania. The town is situated 103 km north east of Launceston. It lies about halfway between Launceston and the east coast and therefore has become something of a popular tourist stop off.
The town's major attraction is the Derby Tin Mine Centre which is a recreation of the mining village including a main street, a sluice, and an assortment of mining equipment. The main street includes the General Store, a Butcher's Shop, a Miner's cottage, and the Mine office, as well as the foreboding old Derby gaol.
Located in the old Derby School, the Museum has comprehensive displays of mining and domestic goods including cross-cut saws, old butter churns, displays of rocks found in the local area, old telephones, and historical documents.
Tasmania is a popular destination for travellers, backpackers, tourists, or business visitors looking for an ecotourism or nature getaway. The temperate climate and pristine wilderness is popular with bushwalkers all year round, but particularly in the summer months when the weather is a little more settled. There's no shortage of fantastic hotel or boutique accommodation and plenty of great food and wine. The seafood is a specialty, as is the Pinot Noir!
