Derwent Entertainment Centre

The Derwent Entertainment Centre was built on the banks of the River Derwent at Glenorchy in the late 1980's and lays next to the Elwick Racecourse.

It was home to former NBL side the Tassie Devils from 1989 until the team's exclusion from the NBL (and subsequent extinction) in 1996.

The DEC seats 5,400 for sports events and can hold as many as 7,500 for concerts.

The venue has a large two tiered seating section on one side, with the lower section being temporary at both ends as well as the racecourse side, which has a large electronic scoreboard mounted on the brickwork behind the temporary stand.

There is hope the venue will be developed in the near future with the possibility of a new Tasmanian-based NBL expansion side, the Southern Huskies (currently competing in the New Zealand NBL).
