I stayed here with a work colleague for a total of a week's fieldwork in the Blue Tier area - one of Tasmania's most beautiful "secret spots". Our hosts Richard and Rita couldn't have been more helpful. They gave us useful local information, helped with transport to field sites, supplied us with excellent food and a selection of craft beers at the end of the day, and were good company when we sat and talked by the welcoming fire. On our first trip we stayed in rooms in the hotel - clean and comfortable. On the next two trips we stayed in the miner's cottage behind the hotel - which suited us perfectly for organising field gear etc under the cover of the wide veranda. It sleeps 4 in bunks but may be a bit crowded with this number. Weldborough is a tiny town compared to its mining heyday about a hundred years ago, when it had Tasmania's first casino. But now its not the place for those who want a glamorous vacation in 5 star accommodation. But its perfect for folk who appreciate a beautiful and peaceful setting, with some great drives, mountain bike trails and walks to experience the landscapes, forests and mining heritage of this lesser-known part of Tasmania. Bring wet weather gear - there are impressive stands of rainforest in the area, which means that there is some chance you could get rained on! Anyway - I'll be going back with my wife and friends to stay at the Weldborough Hotel and to do some more exploring.
