Where you’ll be

Railton, Tasmania, Australia

Railton is at the centre of the Wild Mersey Mountain Bike Trails development and is also home to Railton parkrun. It is known as the Town of Topiary and has a quiet village atmosphere. It's within an hour's drive of Launceston, Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre* and Burnie.
Two cafes, a coffee roaster, a brewery, a pub and and an RSL are in easy walking distance. A pizza shop / takeaway is open most evenings.
Main street shops and services include a post office / news agency, a petrol station / mechanic, a pharmacy, a joinery, a metal workshop and a community information service which also sells local arts & crafts. A well-stocked convenience store is located at the petrol station; the nearest larger supermarkets are at Sheffield (12 minutes drive), Latrobe (15 minutes), Devonport (25 minutes) and Deloraine (35 minutes).

* when searching for directions from Base Camp Railton to Cradle Mountain it is important to search for "Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre" as some mapping apps provide the wrong directions via old forestry roads and mining tracks that can no longer carry vehicles.

I live and work in Tasmania's Town of Topiary in Tasmania's Cradle Country. My playground is the rugged wilderness backdrop of Mount Roland, Cradle Mountain National Park, the Great Western Tiers and the wild caves of the Mole Creek Karst National Park, as well as the beaches at Narawntapu and Marrawah. When travelling I seek out good food and cultural experiences, great adventures and relaxation. I mix accommodation options up, sometimes staying in posh hotels, other times in little pubs and frequently in self-contained accommodation.
