The Highlands

In Tasmania's Central Highlands, mountain peaks rise from button grass plains and highland tarns sparkle in the sun. During winter, snow settles on the shores of the lakes and clear crisp days tempt those who enjoy feeling close to the environment. Here is a place where people can relax far from the bustle of modern life.

Tasmania's Highlands, by their very nature, are central to the rest of the island in every direction and can be accessed by car from a number of directions. Within a short time the traveller can visit this tranquil region whilst touring the rest of the State, from Hobart via Bothwell in southern Tasmania, Strahan on the West Coast, Launceston in the heart of the North, or Devonport on the North West Coast.
