Blue Derby Tasmania – Mountain Bike Tracks and Shuttles

Nestled in temperate rainforest in the north-east of Tasmania, the Blue Derby Mountain Bike trails encompass some of the most stunning landscapes in the state. With more than 80km of green, blue and black trails, there are challenges and fun for riders of all experience levels.
The Blue Tier Trail is an epic wilderness trail wrapping itself through the forest. A 60-minute shuttle gets you to the top of Blue Tier, then try Atlas and the looped trails of Derby and Black Stump.
This world-class mountain bike network meanders its way through the rain forest and is simply spectacular.

Prospecting In Derby Tasmania

Want to try your chances at striking it rich? Prospecting is enjoyed by young and old, whether it is for gemstones, gold or even meteorite fragments.
Little Blue Lake is a popular prospecting spot located near Derby. Once a mine hole, the lake now reflects a stunning aqua blue from the minerals at the bottom. Gem hunters should keep their eyes peeled for smoky quartz, topaz and amethyst. The Cascade River and Mutual River in the Derby region are also popular gemstones fossicking areas. 

Photography opportunities

Amazing photography opportunities are plentiful, with the landscapes of Derby and north east Tasmania offering spectacular diversity of landforms and ecosystems. Take advantage of the ancient green rainforests with granite boulders and stunning ferns and foliage, or travel further north for sparkling blue oceans and white sandy beaches.
