The North East Rivers Festival based in Derby in N.E. Tasmania grew on the back of the iconic
Derby River Derby. The Festival now offers 11 different events over 2 BIG weekends in October
each year. The Committee has packaged up fun family orientated events in varied parts of our Municipality.
These events range from a Pig and Pinot degustation dinner at Pipers Brook Vineyard, where you
can taste great food, local wines and musical entertainment, through to a full on adventure
participating in the Derby River Derby.
Whichever event you choose, make sure you come and have fun, raise your adrenalin levels and
welcome the warmer weather with open arms.
For those of you visiting Tasmania, you may not be familiar with our iconic event the Derby River
Derby. The "Derby" has been an exciting part of North East Tasmania for the last 40 years. Every
year, young folk and adventuresome adults tackle the windy, rapid laden Ringarooma River vying
for trophies and bragging rights. Saturday October 24th will see the small township of Derby come
alive to thrills, spills and mayhem of the Derby River Derby. This year will see the introduction of a
Raft, Run, Ride Event at the Derby, making use of the river and the newly developed Blue Derby
Mountain Bike Trails. This event will cater for team and solo participation.
