Derwent Bridge is the gateway to the southern end of the wilderness and wildlife of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.
Named after its crossing at the source of the mighty Derwent River, it's just 5 km from Lake St Clair and some of Tasmania's most stunning wilderness.
Lake St Clair is Australia's deepest freshwater lake and can be explored on a scenic cruise with spectacular views of the mountain peaks surrounding the lake.
Also nearby is Lake King William where you'll find good trout fishing.
If a longer rest is required, the friendly local pub is a unique eating, drinking and sleeping spot and an iconic roadside attraction.
Derwent Bridge is approximately a 2 hr 30-min drive from Hobart, Launceston and Strahan.
