Rosebery is a town on the west coast of Tasmania, Australia. It is situated at the northern end of the West Coast Range, in the shadow of Mount Black and adjacent to the Pieman River now Lake Pieman.
The population of Rosebery declined by 22% in the years between 1996-2001.
Its newer western area on the shore of Lake Pieman is known as Primrose.
Like most of the west coast, Rosebery is a mining town. In the 1890s, gold, lead, zinc and copper were all discovered in the area. This lasted until the mine’s closure in 1913. In 1927 the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company revived the mines, and today the mines are still running (owned and operated by Zinifex Limited).
