Featured in Specialized #destination Trail-Tasmania with Troy Brosnan

With the exciting development of the Blue Derby mountain bike trails, we have expanded Tin Dragon Trail Cottages to include a renovated bush hut—Settler's Hut. The hut has been set up for mountain bikers and bush walkers. A group of four costs from just just $40 per person per night, yet still provides fully self-contained accommodation with continental breakfast ingredients, all linen, towels & blankets, full kitchen, large bathroom, laundry, plenty of parking and outside BBQ and fire pit. Located just 8km from the Blue Derby trail head and only 500m from the newly opened Branxholm to Derby MTB trail!
