Delightful Detour
Dec. 2020 • Family
After sunrise arrival at Devonport I looked at map for alternate drive south to Hobart.
Glad I went via the Great Lake (& others). A beautiful, big and scenic route.
Fascinated by the shacks around Miena town region.
Next visit to Tassie I’ll plan a stay in this area.

An alternative drive to avoid the Midland Highway
Jun. 2021
We love driving down through the lakes when heading South in Tasmania, rather than taking the boring Midland highway. This time we drive through snow and saw a wombat running across the road.

Great Lake is world renown for its trout fishing but it is also well worth the extra kilometers as an alternative route when driving north - south..... the views are spectacular

Better Fishing Options
Nov. 2019
Ok we had gale force winds so Great Lake was a bit wind swept so we tried fishing there but there are better options with less water between fish.

We enjoyed the drive and camping at the water's edge.
Oct. 2019
A most enjoyable couple of days at and around the Lake. We took all our camping gear and food, had a camp fire yet wood was a little scarce but we found enough and left the extra for the next campers to use. Our car navigated to the water's edge easily thou many modern cars would not do the same without experiencing damage. There was a fuel and food shop in the region but did not appear open thus could not be relied on. We did go early in the week and not the weekend. Wombats were the only animals we say camping, wallabies when driving around the lakes. Please drive carefully with the wallabies. Fishing is permitted with an Inland Fishing permit.

Tasmania's Great Lake

Visited on Thursday 15th November. We drove from Hobart to Devonport inland and covered the western side of the Great Lake from Miena to Breona. Stunning scenery and plenlty of places to stop and have a closer look.

Interesting without WOW factor
Apr. 2019 • Friends
Did the lake clockwise moving up the mountains - first stop little town of Poatina (interesting in a weird way). Called into all of the suggested vantage points and viewing platforms as we circled the Great Lake. It’s high Alpine country so nothing out of the ordinary. Had lunch at the Great Lake Hotel in Miena (log fire the highlight - food was fine) and proceeded back to camp via the A5 towards Liffey. It’s really fishing country and worth the drive if you have a day to spare in Tasmania.

Super spot! The stacks on the way are very interesting! It’s amazing to see such a huge man made lake. The history behind it is good too

Stunning scenery

We rented a place for the weekend very close to the water. We had several lovely walks along the side of the Great Lake. We enjoyed stunning views and enjoyed the remoteness.
