We really enjoyed staying in the cottage which was well insulated, beautifully constructed and named after one of the Chinese miners who once lived in the area. The surroundings are lovely with a herd of gorgeous alpacas just over the fence - we were even lucky enough to see a new-born! A delightful walk through the old tin mining trail... More

The History around this town is totally unknown outside and the history associated with the Tin Dragon cottages found out by the operators is fascinating, make sure you ask them lots of questions

We came across this attraction while driving towards Scottsdale. It was only just off the main road and easy to park. You start by going into a nice hut that tells you a story of the person who mined the area (Great story about a Chinese man). Then you follow the sign posts around the trial that takes about half...

Fascinating to see the water race that carried water for mines in Derby - a lot to learn about this forgotten corner of Aus!

The Heritage Walk and Settlers Hut gave us some insights into the Chinese tin miners who held leases to mine this area, and the hard life they led so far from home. The Briseis Race walk took us through magnificent ferns and sassafras, along the race built to deliver water to the Briseis mine. Mostly easy walking and magical understorey... More

A spring walk with the family - our 4 year old was fascinated by the story in the interpretation centre, then there were the wildflowers, birds and heritage to admire. Great spot, very interesting heritage.

Two walks on the property and another one adjacent make this a great place to increase your understanding of the tin-mining history & Chinese heritage of NE Tas. Graham and Christine have value-added the walks with excellent interpretation, art installations that are so good that it is best to leave them as a surprise for you, and a wonderful spot... More

If you are in the area and feel like a nice walk through the bush give this a go. There is a 20 minute option or a 3 hour option from memory.
