Lake Burbury

Natural Attractions

Lake Burbury is a popular fishing lake on the edge of Tasmania’s World Heritage Wilderness Area.
At Lake Burbury, a 15-minute drive east of Queenstown, you can fish for the legendary Tasmanian wild trout with both brown and rainbow trout in abundance or just take in the natural beauty and serenity of the place.
Named after Stanley Burbury, the first Australian-born Governor of Tasmania, the 54 square-kilometre lake was man-made for hydro-electricity production in the early 1990s.
There are boat launching, picnic and barbecue facilities.
