Boyer TAS


Postcode: 7140

Boyer is a town on the eastern side of the Derwent River (Tasmania), opposite and slightly downstream of New Norfolk. It is named after a family who first settled in the area in the early 1800s. It is the site of Australian Newsprint Mills’ plant in Tasmania. For many decades paper was shipped by tug and barge from the plant to the port of Hobart, Tasmania but all freight is now sent by road or rail.
