DERBY

DERBY

The tiny riverside village of Derby is a quaint surprise on the winding country drive from Launceston to the East Coast.   Overlooking the Ringarooma River in a landscape of mountains and rainforest, Derby is a classified historic town that's small on scale but big on stories.   Once a booming mining settlement, Derby's Tin Dragon Interpretation Centre tells of the town's early days when it was known as Brother's Home and was the setting for an epic tin rush that saw thousands of eager miners flock to the area. You can learn more by following the Trail of the Tin Dragon, an interpretation trail that reveals the trials and tribulations of Chinese tin mining in the area.
