What’s so special?

IT does often take an outsider to remind us about some of the things that make our home so special. A recent visitor posted a video clip on YouTube (here) as well as highlighting the following attractions observed in the Derwent Valley:

  • Australia’s deepest cave system (Maydena)
  • World’s tallest hardwood trees (Maydena)
  • World’s tallest flowering plants (Maydena)
  • World’s largest producer of osmiridium (early 1900s – Adamsfield)
  • Australia’s highest dam (Strathgordon)
  • World’s highest commercial abseil (Strathgordon)
  • Lake Pedder and Lake Gordon largest inland freshwater storage in Australia
  • Last confirmed capture of Tasmanian tiger (Maydena)

and that’s just for starters!
