Maydena. Store, closed.

(11 Photos) – We called in to this iconic shop just before we headed off home late in the afternoon. It is the last place to get supplies on the road to Lake Pedder. Or rather, it was the last place, we were probably the last customers to order hamburgers on it’s last day of trading.

This institution has been sold and the new owners will not be continuing the store, which leaves the new Maydena Bike Park and The Giant’s Table as the few places to still get a feed.

Below are some photos from a wander around the town of Maydena.

At a guess, this was once a butcher’s shop.

Maybe the mountain bike park can help get Maydena back on the rails.

    1. The town was founded in early 1900 on the back of forestry and mining and the railway used for haulage. It may bode well for the Maydena bike park if they can take up the slack – so to speak.
