Tourist Activities Central Highlands Tasmania Australia

It is strongly recommended that bookings are made for tours, guiding and boat hire in order to ensure availability.

Ferry Ride At Lake St Clair

Enjoy a ferry ride on the deepest lake in Australia. Marvel at the unique scenery in this Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Perhaps cruise one way, and bushwalk the other way. The cool temperate rainforest walk showcases many unique plant species. Information on extended bushwalks, including overnight experiences, or the end point of The Overland Track, is available from National Park and Wildlife staff.

Nocturnal Wildlife Tours

Will you be lucky enough to see wildlife in the Tasmanian bush? Be collected from your accommodation and taken to a private property bush setting. Your guide will direct your gaze to some of Tasmanias wildlife. You might view kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, deer, possums or echidnas in their natural setting, the highlands landscape.

Trout Guiding

Tasmanias Central Highlands is world famous for the quality and canniness of trout. Fully guided trout fishing experiences are a must! With all equipment supplied, and collected from your accommodation, let your personal guide introduce you to the delights and culture of trout fishing in pristine lakes and waterways.

Boat Hire

Hiring a fully equipped boat allows for a personal exploration of some nearby eleven lakes. Fish, relax, photograph, or read, all in the comfort of your very own boat.
Or perhaps hire a boat, with a local at the helm! Will they divulge the secrets of where the trout are to be found?

The Wall In The Wilderness

The WALL in the Wilderness at Derwent Bridge is a world class commemorative sculptural work-in-progress. Sip on Tasmanian wine as you contemplate life in Tasmanias Central Highlands in earlier times.

Waddamana Power Station Museum

Free, self-guided tours. View original machinery, photographic displays, memorabilia, and artefacts of a hydro electric power station from the early 1900s. Open daily from 10am to 4pm (except for Christmas Day and Good Friday)

The Highlands Trail

The Highlands Trail driving routes reveal a rich pioneering history. See fine wool growing countryside near Hamilton, explore historic Bothwell and the Golf Museum, stretch your legs at the Stephen Walker bronze sculptures, picnic at the Steppes historic site, view examples of hydro electric engineering achievements at Waddamana and Bronte Park. Study a still operational wooden stave pipeline. Fish the lakes area, and be amazed by the unusual snow and cider gum forests.

Huts at Bronte Park

Three examples of accommodation huts for single men reveal the harsh living conditions of earlier times, the late 1940s.

The Tasmanian Trail

The Tasmanian Trail links up existing forestry roads, fire trails, country roads, and private land, allowing an exploration and discovery of bush, farmlands, mountain plateaux, and historic architecture. Walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders can join the trail at various points, like Bronte Park.
