The small alpine Village of Maydena is only a 1¼ hour scenic drive from Hobart. Nestled in the heart of the Derwent Valley, it’s surrounded by national parks and on the edge of World Heritage Listed Wilderness areas.

With so much to do, including mountain bike riding, rainforest walks and trout fishing, there’s something for everyone!

Surrounded by natural beauty, Maydena is also the perfect place to completely unwind and relax.

It’s no wonder our guests love staying here!
