Around Queenstown



Trout fishing at Lake Burbury

Lake Burbury is a popular fishing lake on the edge of Tasmania’s World Heritage Wilderness Area. At Lake Burbury, just 15 minutes east of Queenstown, you can fish for the legendary Tasmanian wild trout, with both brown and rainbow trout in abundance. Named after Stanley Burbury, the first Australian-born Governor of Tasmania, the 54 square-kilometre (33 square-mile) lake was man-made for hydroelectricity in the early 1990's. There are boat launching, picnic and barbecue facilities for you to use.




West Coast Wilderness Railway

In 2000, after three years of restoration by entrepreneur Roger Smith and an investment of $30 million, part of the tracks were again put to use. Two years later Federal Hotels and Resorts became the new owners, renaming it as the west Coast Wilderness Railway.

Gallery Museum

Located in Queenstown's first brick hotel, the Imperial (1898) (corner of Driffield and Sticht Streets), the Galley Museum was established by Eric Thomas. As the brochure explains: 'there are in excess of 800 photographs displayed in seven rooms. All have been collected by Mr Thomas with a great amount of detail typed under each photo. The photos cover the history of the West Coast from the establishment of Mt Bischoff at Waratah to the development of Queenstown and Strahan.

Queenstown Football Oval

Queenstown Oval is one of the most infamous sports grounds in Australia. Infamous for the fact that its playing surface is gravel.
The Gravel oval has hosted football and community events in Queenstown for well over a century, and legend has it, that it was the first ground in Tasmania to install a siren to signal the start and end of each quarter with a siren borrowed from the Mt Lyell Mines.



Historic Walk

There is a brochure titled 'The Walkabout Queenstown' published by the Project Queenstown Committee. The town is now a classified historic town and it is not surprising that the brochure lists 25 locations (all within easy walking distance of each other) which take the visitor past most of the town's significant buildings.
