Our Community

The Derwent Valley Municipal area is characterised by its ever growing rural townships, green hills and river valley environment.

The municipal area covers 4,111 sq kms in South Central Tasmania. This peaceful, rural setting provides a gateway to some of Tasmania's most spectacular wilderness areas, including Mt Field National Park and the Western Tasmanian World Heritage Area.
