Tullah

Tullah is placed on the shores of peaceful Lake Rosebery and sits beneath Mt Farrell, a 712 metre mountain, often shrouded in mist. Mining ceased in 1974 but two years later, the Hydro Electric Commission built over 250 dwellings to house employees working on local power schemes.

Until the early 1960's the only access to Tullah (other than by foot or horse) was by a siding off the Emu Bay Railway. The "Wee Georgie Wood" steam locomotive reenacts this journey in a popular 1.6 km train ride that departs from the middle of town.

Tullah is a tranquil base for:

  • Fishing or exploring the lake by boat.
  • Shopping for a wealth of hand-crafted artifacts such as bowls, platters, clocks, and vases made from huon pine, sassafras or Tasmanian oak.
  • Enjoying a wilderness walk, or mountain bike across the surrounding hills while taking in the wonderful views across to the distant peaks of the western wilderness.
