Tullah  Tasmania

    •   Show me: a map of Tullah

The former mining town of Tullah in Tasmania's west is set in what is known as the lakes district. The lakes were formed after damming for hydroelectric schemes and are now well-stocked with brown and rainbow trout, eagerly sought by fly fishing enthusiasts (a fishing licence is required).

Dominating the town is the wooded peak of Mt Farrell. It is a strenuous three hour walk to the summit, but you will be rewarded by magnificent views, an alpine lake just below the summit and wonderful wildflower display in spring.

In town, the North Mount Farrell Tramway was built to facilitate the moving of goods in and out of the remote mining town. It closed in 1964 after the completion of the Murchison Highway and has now been restored as a tourist railway, the Wee Georgie Wood Steam Railway. Wee Georgie Wood is actually a steam engine, and steam-drawn rides are available along the restored section of track on Saturdays except in winter.

Tullah is on the shores of Lake Rosebery, surrounded by forests and mountains and close to the Southwest Conservation Area. There are boat tours of the lake from the nearby town of Rosebery. Between Tullah and Rosebery is the spectacular Anthony Road, which goes to Anthony Power Station, one of the state's newest. Several classic walks can be accessed from the road and it is one of the few places where you can see all the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair peaks.

South of Rosebery is Montezuma Falls, Tasmania's tallest waterfall at 104m (312 ft). Around many of the lakes are picnic and barbeque facilities and walking trails.

Things to do:
  • Fly fishing - for brown and rainbow trout
  • Wee Georgie Wood Steam Railway - steam-drawn rides on Saturdays
  • Mt Farrell - views, a lake and wildflower displays in spring
In the area:
  • Scenic drive - along Anthony Road, which goes to Anthony Power Station
  • Montezuma Falls - Tasmania's tallest waterfall
  • Lakes - picnics, BBQs, boat trips
  • Walking trails
