By now, you are probably well aware of the beauty that Derby has to offer. You may have heard about it on the grape vine or had a stay here yourself. This mountain biking mecca is one seriously amazing old town, which has undergone a major rejuvenation in recent times.

Where you’ll be

Derby, Tasmania, Australia

There is no comprehensive general store in town yet so it is recommended you go shopping in one of the larger towns such as Scottsdale (25 minutes) which has a Woolies, bakery, butcher and bottle shops etc. Branxholme (5 minutes) has a smaller IGA general store. There are however great cafe's in Derby and The Dorset Hotel just down the road serves fantastic lunches and dinners.
Telstra is the only phone service provider with good reception throughout Derby so if you are with another provider expect intermittent or very limited mobile phone service.
