Adamsfield

Introduction

Adamsfield was once a thriving osmiridium mining settlement with a population of more than 1000 people in Tasmania’s remote south-west. Today there is little left of this once booming town apart from a quiet valley with scattered relics, which are gradually being reclaimed by the bush.

Although remote, the historic settlement can be visited by foot from Clear Hill Road or by 4WD along the Adamsfield Track.  

The Adamsfield Conservation Area is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
