Rosebery is a zinc and gold mining town in Tasmania's west that's situated in a beautiful natural setting.
Nestled deep within a secret valley, Rosebery is dominated by mining and surrounded by a striking landscape of dense forest and the volcanic mountains of the West Coast Range.
It's a town of contrasts, famous for its beautiful natural setting and harsh mining history - the scenic loop above the town provides spectacular views.
Rosebery is also close to Montezuma Falls – one of Tasmania's tallest waterfalls. The waterfall can be reached on an interesting walk along an old mining tram line or by four-wheel-drive.
More walks can be had on Mount Read with excellent views of Rosebery and its beautiful surroundings.
Rosebery is a 90-min drive (125 km) south of Burnie.
