Rosebery - Cities, Towns and Localities
Rosebery remains the major mining town of the West Coast. The town is surrounded by rainforest, with Mount Murchison on the eastern boundary.

At the old mining town of Williamsford, just 8 km south of Rosebery, is Tasmania’s highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls. Within walking distance from the car park, there is a graded trail (approximately 7 km) along an abandoned tram line from the Williamsford end,  to the Falls. The walk takes about three hours, return trip.

Check out our listing of Rosebery accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.

Rosebery Attractions

Montezuma Falls
• Tasmania’s Highest Waterfall, with the walk (7 kms), taking about 3 hours return. The walk is a gently graded track starting from the township of Williamsford. The track has recently been subjected to some upgrading by the National Parks and Wildlife and 4WD enthusiasts, who have constructed a viewing platform at the foot of the falls.
Mount Murchison
• This 4 km walk takes about 4 hours return and offers many photographic opportunities of the West Coast. It is not an easy walk/climb for the faint hearted, but very much worth the effort and is recommended for the serious walker. The track is accessible from the Anthony Road that runs from Tullah to Queenstown and climbs through a variety of ancient alpine forests. The transition of vegetative types from base to the summit is remarkable, with the different seasons also showing changes. The alpine autumn is especially vivid with the changing colours of the deciduous beech.
Mount Read
• Is home to possibly the oldest living plant on earth, so far discovered, the Huon Pines. Although it is not accessible to the public, there are guided tours available. (See the Lake Johnson Reserve Tour). Located in the Lake Johnson Nature Reserve is this group of Huon Pines thought to have been living at this location for more than 10,000 years and is of world heritage significance. The reserve also contains the largest collection of alpine flora known of in one area of the state.
Wee Georgie Wood Steam Train • TULLAH
• Take a nostalgic ride on the Wee Georgie Wood Steam Railway. The ride is 2 km in length, along the scenic track into the centre of what is now known as Old Tullah to the locals, giving the tourist a taste of what travel was like on old railway back in the early days. The train was named after a famous British comedian at the turn of the century and served Tullah as the only means of transport to the outside world for nearly 40 years, becoming redundant when the road was built to Rosebery in 1962. Fully restored and registered by a group of local steam enthusiasts who now organise regular outings. Table of running times is available on the Tullah Web Page and other local outlets.
