This small shack-village on the shores of Great Lake in Tasmania’s central highlands has excellent trout fishing and stunning scenery.

It offers good fishing and good walks along the shore and there are plenty of opportunities for bird watching or simply relaxing by the waterside. However, be warned; this is one of the coldest places in Tasmania and in winter the stunning snow-covered landscape is best enjoyed by a log fire.
