Derwent Bridge is a locality on the Lyell Highway at the southern edge of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.
It is just south of Lake St Clair and the Lake St Clair visitor centre; and it is north of Lake King William and the Butlers Gorge Power Station.
It is also the last inhabited location before Linda Valley in the West Coast Range - this section of the highway passes through the Wild Rivers National Park. In the past there were a couple of isolated houses along Lyell Highway that have been removed.
Today, Derwent Bridge features not only the bridge alluded to in its name – spanning the Derwent River –
but accommodation units, and also a roadside public house.
Derwent Bridge was used as a principal filming location for the 2008 film The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce.
Derwent Bridge Post Office opened on 15 February 1937 and closed in 1980.
