Avalon Blue @ Derby (Blue Derby Endorsed) is a 120 year old clean and comfortable miners cottage, located in Derby – North East Tasmania.

Our new beds, heat pump, full kitchen, large table for meals, TV, Blue Ray & movies all help with your relaxation experience.

A new secure bike storage area and deck have been built out the back, together with the fire pit out the front – to enjoy quite beers and reminisce about the epic day you have had riding the Blue Derby tails.

Located in a quiet Derby side Street, just over the road from the public camp ground. The Blue Derby trails are approximately 1000 meters away, via a quick ride through the Derby town or along the river bank.

We are conveniently located about 100 meters from the Dorset Hotel, a great location for meals and drinks. The various other Derby food locations are within 5 minutes walk, including Crank it Cafe, Two Doors Down and The Hub.

The public tennis court is across the road, together with the kids playground. Fishing and swimming in the Ringarooma river and Briseis Dam (License required for trout) is popular with the kids.

Heating is via a new reverse-cycle A/C-heat pump and wood heater both located centrally in the house. The house has been re-wired and insulated. Electric blankets on all beds and a small portable heater in the bathroom.
