Boyer is a town on the eastern side of the River Derwent Tasmania, Australia, opposite and slightly downstream of New Norfolk. It is named after a family who first settled in the area in the early 19th century. It is the site of Australian Newsprint Mills' plant in Tasmania. For many decades paper was shipped by tug and barge from the plant to the port of Hobart, Tasmania but all freight is now sent by road or rail.
