New Norfolk to Kallista

Below is a list of the Stations and Stops between New Norfolk and Kallista. The Derwent Valley Line branches off the Main line at Bridgewater Junction and heads West on the North side of the Derwent River via Boyer before reaching New Norfolk. It then climbs following the Derwent River and crossing it three times before Glenora. The track then leaves the Derwent River Valley and heads west up the Tyenna Valley. Beyond National Park it terminates at Kallista.
