A mountain bike trip doesn't need to mean bunk beds and one toilet for six people.
River Cabins Derby
Not everyone is travelling with a small army, and if you’re headed down to Derby with a few mates, or maybe as a family, The River Cabins are just up the Ringarooma from The Dales of Derby and offer something a bit cozier.
“Over the last few years, there has been a boom in renovating existing houses and prefabricated buildings being installed in the area. With the experience that we had as riders coming to Derby, we could see that there was a gap in the market for something that was different,” says River Cabins Derby co-owner and Shimano Australia Brand Manager Toby Shingleton. “Our goal from the start was to create cabins which are designed specifically for smaller or individual bookings, and which utilised local craftsmen and Tasmanian materials.”
The River Cabins opened at the beginning of the year with one and two-bedroom options, with flexible layouts for the beds, foldouts for the mini shredders, a full kitchen and big decks to enjoy some of that crisp Tasmanian air.
