Tullah is on the edge of Lake Rosebery and overlooked by magnificent Mount Farrell and Mount Murchison. Once a small mining town, it was extended in the 1970s to accommodate workers on the Pieman River Power Development Scheme.
In Tullah, you can hire a mountain bike or take a wilderness walk for unsurpassed views of the distant peaks, or you might prefer to paddle the lake or Henty River in a sea kayak or canoe with an experienced guide.
Boating and fishing are popular past times with small boats launched into the lake from the boat ramp off the town’s main street.
Prior to the building of adequate roads in the area, the Wee Georgie Wood Railway – under its earlier name of the North Farrell Tramway – serviced the town. Today you can ride the small-gauge steam locomotive on a 25-min (1.6 km) ride from the middle of town.
Tullah is an 80-min drive (110 km) south of Burnie.
