Queenstown is known as the gateway to the wild, rugged and spectacularly beautiful West Coast of Tasmania having a rich and varied mining history, and being renowned for its unique moonscape, that is becoming less visible as mother nature takes over. Queenstown is located in close proximity to the edge of Tasmania’s World Heritage Wilderness Area and is surrounded by great fishing lakes including Lake Burbury, Lake King William, and Bronte Lagoon.¬†Queenstown is the largest town on the West Coast of Tasmania and is surrounded by an imposing landscape punctuated by spectacular scenery and was once the world’s richest mining town. The copper mining and mass logging in the early 1900s created a unique rocky moon-like effect of bare coloured conglomerate that appeared so spectacularly when driving into Queenstown off the Lyell Highway from Hobart.
