Settler’s Hut accommodation in the Bush near Blue Derby MTB trails

Settler’s Hut

Located near Blue Derby MTB Trails

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 six is just $40 per person per night, yet still provides a full kitchen, large bathroom, laundry, plenty of parking and outside BBQ and fire pit.

The Settler's Hut is an easy 8km from the Blue Derby trail head. Settler's Hut featured in #Destination Trail-Tasmania with Troy Brosnan

The North Eastern Mountain Bike project is developing three trail networks totaling 80kms of world-class, purpose-built, single track. The Cascade Forest area—now called Blue Derby—only 10 mins from Tin Dragon Trail Cottages, boasts some of the best mountain biking trails in Australia. The Cascade has been part of the popular Blue Dragon MTB Challenge. Why not try it yourself? Just a little further afield trails are also being developed in the forests of the Blue Tiers. You can choose from green, blue and black routes at each Blue Derby trail location (Derby & Blue Tier).

The first 20km of the Blue Derby trail out of Derby opened February 7th 2015 with all routes due for completion in 2016.

See our Blog for information and photos of Blue Derby. You can read about other popular walking tracks too.

Of course you can also cycle the scenic North East Rail Trail, or quiet country roads through farmlands surrounded by mountains, breathe the fresh air, enjoy a picnic under an old blackwood tree or visit one of the local open-gardens or farms. Why not explore the near-by short walks? then there’s the fresh local food…just ask us.
