Welcome to Millies, a charming, cosy miner’s cottage in the historic town of Derby.

In 1874 George Renison Bell discovered tin and miners flocked to the valley. In 1876 the ‘Brothers Mine’ which was named after the Krushka brothers, was opened. The settlement that grew up around the mine became known as ‘Brothers Home’ and that name persisted until in 1887 it was decided to change the name to Derby. Come and visit the world class mountain biking trail network of Derby!

The space
Millie’s is an historic character cottage built in 1901.
The two bedroom cottage includes a queen size bed and the second bedroom has two single beds, however, the cottage is only suitable for three people. All beds and mattresses are new and super comfy! All bed linen and towels are provided. The cottage is full of character with a mix of antique and contemporary furniture.
There is a new large lockable bike shed for secure bike storage and there’s a track pump and a few tools in the shed!

Enjoy the beautiful wood fire if it’s chilly, or sit out on the classic front verandah and take in the view of the Derby MTB trail head, only 200 metres away.

Where you’ll be

Derby, Tasmania, Australia

It’s a special feeling driving along the Main Street of Derby. A pure mountain bike village! Bike racks are everywhere and the free bike wash area is fantastic with enough pressure to clean the muddiest of bikes.
Then there’s the enchanting forest of the Blue Tier Forest Reserve- it really is as good as photos you’ve seen in magazines.

Derby is only a one hour scenic drive to the Bay of Fires via the coastal hamlet of St Helens which now has the new Mtb park built by the same trail builders as Derby.

Activities (other than MTB) available include:
Floating Sauna Lake Derby
Public tennis court and kids playground
Fishing and swimming in the Ringarooma River and Briseis Hole (licence required for trout
Keep your eye out for the resident platypus!
Lots of trail walks in the area
Little Rivers Brewery located in Scottsdale
So many wineries in the North East
Lavender Farm
Barnbougle Dunes and The Lost Farm for golf (at Bridport, a 45min drive)
