Lake Meadowbank

Natural Attractions

Lake Meadowbank is between Hamilton and Ouse on the Lyell Highway, a one-hour drive north-west of Hobart.
This is the most downstream lake in the Derwent River hydro-scheme. Like all Hydro Tasmania lakes, Lake Meadowbank is stocked with trout. Try your luck fly fishing, spinning or trolling for brown trout – the lake’s most abundant fish – or perhaps a big rainbow trout.
Water-skiing, canoeing and swimming are popular here and you can pitch your tent by the shore for a few days and truly get away from it all.
Boat launching facilities, toilets, picnic and barbecue areas are available on the lake’s eastern banks and there’s easy access from most shores.
You need a licence to fish for trout in Tasmania’s lakes. A free brochure – Fishing Code for Anglers – is available from licence-selling agents and the Inland Fisheries Service.
