Maydena lies 90 kilometres from Hobart on the edge of the South West World Heritage Wilderness and the most popular national park for Tasmanians at Mt Field.

The timber town has a rich forestry heritage, providing much of Australias newsprint since the end of the Second World War. Today, it remains a source of sustainable timber and forest products, providing jobs for 30 percent of the regions workforce.

The interaction between the colourful timber heritage and the iconic wilderness including the worlds tallest flowering plants, will provide a unique experience for visitors to Forestrys Maydena Adventure Hub.

Buses have been purchased to transport visitors to the summit and the Eagles Eyrie is rapidly taking shape.

The centrepiece of the hub will be a Eagles Eyrie lookout perched high above the Maydena township, overlooking the Styx, Florentine and Gordon forests the ideal place to pause either during or after a day of activity in the surrounding valleys.

The Hub will offer a variety of adventure activities.bush walking, mountain biking, trout fishing, and a ticketing office will operate from the Maydena township to organise your day of activity.

Half the fun will be getting there the drive from Hobart takes you through the beautiful Derwent Valley along the Rivers Run touring route, up past the Mt Field National Park and onto Maydena.

An hour and a half from Hobart and you are in another world giant trees, rainforest, wild rivers and outstanding scenery.
