WARATAH

WARATAH

Waratah is a small, scenic town on the edge of the Tarkine wilderness with a rich mining past, a magnificent town-side waterfall and a unique lakeside setting.   The town sits on the edge of Lake Waratah and the Tarkine Reserve and was once home to the richest tin mine in the southern hemisphere. Mining has long since ended and Waratah now attracts visitors for its history, remoteness and unique setting: how many towns can boast a waterfall right in the centre of town?   The Waratah Courthouse Museum has an eclectic collection of local artifacts, photos and stories and 'Philosopher' Smith's Hut next door reveals the living conditions in the early days of pioneers and mining.
