Great Lake Hotel & Caravan Park - TAS

Caravan Park - Tasmania


The Great Lake Hotel is situated on the shores of the Great Lake. Miena, Tasmania. In the heart of Tasmania’s Central Plateau, the Great Lake Hotel is ideally situated to take advantage of many excellent trout waters.

Located 132km northwest of Hobart and 114km southwest of Launceston, Miena is a fishing village on the southern shores of the Great Lake.

The Great Lake, which is 22km long, has the distinction of being the highest lake in Australia and, until the HEC drowned Lake Pedder, it was also the largest freshwater lake in the country.

The trout fishing in Great Lake itself is excellent (as it is in most of the waters in this central highlands region) it is renowned for its summer ‘hatches’ of Highland Dun mayflies and the fat, speckled brown trout that dine greedily upon them. The Great Lake attracts fly-casting visitors from across the country and around the world.

The great appeal of Miena is the fishing in the area which, apart from attracting the country’s best trout fishermen, also attracts such ‘personalities’ as George Harrison and that well known fishing enthusiast, Malcolm Fraser. For people not interested in fishing the shores of the Great Lake are ideal for bushwalking.
