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 stadium is modern and attractive on the inside but not quite so attractive from the outside, access is reasonably good with good car park facilities.


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


It has a local nickname as the White Elephant, given the lack of people visiting it since the demise of the Devils. A good modern stadium that sadly gets little use.
