Rosebery, at the foot of Mount Black, is an active zinc-mining town with an estimated yield of $8 billion since mining began over a century ago.
Rosebery lays claim to:
- The "highest" post code in Tasmania,
- Australia's steepest golf course,
- Tasmania's highest rainfall on nearby Mount Read
- Mount Black is the highest mountain in the southern hemisphere with trees at its summit.
- Tasmania's highest waterfall - Montezuma Falls, accessed either by walking along the old tram route, by self-drive or by a 4WD tour.
- Stitt Falls is reached in about a 30 minute walk through rain forest, starting at Stitt Park in the heart of Rosebery.
Just 10 minutes' drive from town is the start of the track to Tasmania's highest waterfall (104 metres), accessed through a pleasant park-like rainforest. More...
