Rosebery (pop ~1600) is one of the larger towns on Tasmania's west coast. Gold, lead and zinc mining once fuelled Rosebery's growth, but now only the zinc mine remains. The mine, which is open for public inspection, sends its zinc to Hobart for processing.

Fishing tours depart from Rosebery; nearby Lake Rosebery, Lake MacKintosh and Lake Murchison all provide good trout fishing. South of Rosebery are the Montezuma Falls, the state's tallest at 104m (312 ft).

Tullah is a tiny town close to Rosebery. Horseback riding tours depart from Tullah. In the area are the Anthony Power Station, one of the state's newest, and the Wee Georgie Wood historic steam train.

Rosebery and Tullah each have two 3½-star accommodation facilities (RACT rated).
