The small riverside village of Maydena is the gateway to Tasmania’s World Heritage wilderness and an ideal stop for those on their way to remote Lake Peddar. Maydena sits by the Tyenna River, south-west of New Norfolk between Mount Field National Park and Lake Pedder.
The village has a rich forestry heritage but is now better known for its close proximity to some of Tasmania’s most beautiful natural places including Mt Field National Park and Southwest National Park. With the establishment of the Maydena Bike Park, this area is now known for its world-class mountain bike trails.
Just a short drive from Maydena, you’ll find Mt Field National Park, home to one of Tasmania’s most beautiful waterfalls, Russell Falls.
Arguably one of Tasmania’s prettiest waterfalls, Russell Falls is a tiered cascade waterfall just a short walk from the park’s visitor centre. Easy to get to, the 20-minute return walk to the falls is on a good track and boardwalk through a lovely rain forest.
This is a truly unique way to experience the rainforest in Maydena and Mt Field National Park. Railtrack Riders is Australia’s only pedal railway. The easy-to-operate vehicles give you exclusive access to a tract of the southern Tasmanian rainforest via a historic rail line.
Being pedal-powered, the Railtrack Riders allow visitors to travel at their own pace and fully experience the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest. A wonderful family-friendly experience. Check out the Railtrack Riders website for more information.
These views will have you spellbound. The Eagles Eyrie lookout, formerly a Forestry Tasmania tourism venture, is the summit of the Maydena Bike Park.
Eagles Eyrie is at the top of Abbott’s Peak, a mountain on the edge of Tasmania’s South-West World Heritage Wilderness area. ‘Eyrie’ is a term for the nest of an eagle or other bird of prey, built in a high inaccessible place and perfectly captures this breathtaking spot. Towering 1100 metres above sea level, perched at the top edge of Abbott’s Peak, yet lying in the ‘saddle’ is the Eagles Eyrie, a large glass and timber building, with restaurant, function centre and large viewing platforms.
Head up for a coffee and take in the fresh clear air and stunning 360-degree views.
The Tyenna River between Westerway and Maydena in Tasmania’s south enjoys a reputation as one of the state’s premier trout fishing rivers. The Tyenna is regularly in the top 10 most popular river fisheries in the state and enjoys a high catch rate.
It is renowned for its large head of fish, consistent flows, beautiful surroundings and challenging angling. The river also has a reputation as big fish water with several trophy fish taken each season. The trout population is dominated by browns with a sprinkling of rainbows and even the occasional Atlantic salmon.
