Sites containing aboriginal flaked stone implements have been discovered in the Queenstown area, some 30 km inland from the west coast of Tasmania. The sites occur mainly on low ridge tops along the East Queen River and Reservoir Creek, and have been exposed only after removal of the original cover of rainforest and peat around the mine area. They suggest extensive inland habitation by the aborigines prior to the establishment of the now-widespread rainforest.
