Welcome to Midlands & Central Highlands


The current course of the Midland Hwy has strayed from its original path – a few meandering detours are required to explore the old towns here, with their Georgian main streets, antique shops and country pubs.

Not far to the west, the undertouristed Central Highlands feature subalpine moorlands and trout-filled lakes. Bounded to the south by the Derwent Valley with its sleepy farming towns, this landscape is quintessentially Tasmanian: wild, underpopulated and hauntingly Gothic.
