CLASSIFIED HISTORIC TOWN

Deloraine, midway between Launceston and Devonport, is an area of many charms and attractions.

These range from colonial buildings, reflecting the area’s early history, gentle pastoral scenery against the spectacular backdrop of the Great Western Tiers, to the nearby caves and attractions at Mole Creek, and the tranquil, tree-lined Meander River.

Of particular interest is the famous Yarns Artwork in Silk. A magnificent four panel depiction, in silk, of the region.

Detouring from Deloraine, the Lake Highway rises spectacularly 1,000 metres by Quamby Bluff to the Central Highlands and Great Lake. An alternative tour from Deloraine is via Mole Creek, with the limestone caves to the rugged mountain areas opened up by the Mersey-Forth power development.

Deloraine is part of the Great Western Tiers Touring Route.
