Queenstown is the largest town on Tasmania's west coast
and for decades was a significant centre for mining and forestry. Both
industries have significantly reduced from the hey days but the effects
of mining is a strong feature with the still bare hills
surrounding Queenstown caused by sulphur fumes from the copper smelters
killing the vegetation. Today visitors can tour the historical mining
sites, enjoy trout fishing, visit the nearby World Heritage Area and
take a ride on the heritage Wilderness Railway into the rain forest.
