The Dales of Derby is purpose-built group accommodation catering for groups of up to 24 people. The contemporary architecture comprises a warm interior with thoughtful attention to detail and is arranged to ensure a natural flow for even the largest group.
The generous common area with a wood heater and full kitchen forms the hub of the building. This is a place to gather in the mornings for breakfast and to plan the adventures of the day ahead, then regroup in the evenings to recount your feats and discoveries.
Includes an outdoor undercover deck and BBQ, generous bike shed, and disabled access/bathroom facilities.
When it’s finally time to wind up for the evening, retire to the comfortable sleeping area. Four rooms feature queen-sized beds and the remaining two rooms in the sleeping area contain group bunk bed accommodations for 16.
Settled on the banks of the Ringarooma River, the Dales offer a perfect hub for groups wanting to enjoy the serene surrounds or experience the world-class mountain biking the area is famous for.
The Dales was awarded the 2019 Barry McNeill Award for Sustainable Architecture and the Commercial Architecture Award by the Australian Institute of Architecture, Tasmanian Chapter.
