Lake Rowallan

Natural Attractions

Lake Rowallan is a Hydro Tasmania lake in northwest Tasmania. The Lake is a 30 minute drive (25 kilometres/16 miles) south of Liena, past Lake Parangana and the Mersey White Water Forest Reserve. The last few kilometres of road to Lake Rowallan is unsealed.

Lake Rowallan offers excellent bush-based trout fishing, with a stocked population of rainbow and brown trout as well as some native species. You can launch your boat at the northern end of the Lake or follow the four wheel drive vehicle tracks to sheltered camping areas where small boats can be launched from the shore. Lake Rowallan is also the starting point for walks into nearby highland areas including the Walls of Jerusalem national park.

Along with Lakes Parangana and Cethana, Lake Rowallan forms part of the Mersey-Forth catchment—a system of lakes created by Hydro Tasmania for the generation of electricity. There are seven power stations in this catchment system, contributing about 15.8 percent of Tasmania’s energy needs.

You will 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 Commission.
