The Lodge is perfectly located literally within 100 metres of Derby's world renowned Blue Derby MTB Trails and provides everything you need for your MTB experience of a lifetime.
On the Main Street in the beautiful riverside township of Derby the Lodge offers wonderful views and a large back garden that overlooks the nearby river.
The historic Postmaster's Lodge has been recently renovated and converted into a self catering guest house for short term rentals. The original building also operates as the township's local Post Office and includes the local convenience Store.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms each with single beds PLUS downstairs, a bed-sitting room with a double spring mattress sofa bed and TV: ideal as a parents retreat or for couples. There is also a trundle bed available for that someone who decides to join you at the last minute.
Two newly renovated bathrooms with showers will keep everyone fresh and ready to go.

The Postmaster's Lodge is central to all the Derby township has to offer. Just a short walk along Main Street to local cafes, pizza restaurant, stores, pub and bike hire and shuttle services.
The township itself is the perfect spot not just for the famous Blue Derby MTB Trails but for bush walking, fishing and kayaking.
It is a great base for touring Tasmania's beautiful north eastern wineries, waterfalls, forests and beaches: for example it is just 90 minutes from the spectacular Bay of Fires and 60 minutes to the famous Pipers Brook Vineyard.
Derby is also home to the annual madcap Derby River Derby and regularly hosts the best MTBers from around Australia and overseas for events such as the upcoming Asia-Pacific Continental Enduro Series.
The Postmaster's Studio sleeping 2-4 guests is presently being built under the main lodge, and
The Postmaster's River Cottage sleeping 4-6 guests is being built with sweeping decks overlooking the river.
Both available for booking from 8 October 2018.
