Welcome to The Lakes


In the seminal days of hydroelectric ambition, a small Great Lake dam was constructed to raise water levels near Miena. Yingina/Great Lake is linked to nearby Arthurs Lake by canals, and a pumping station supplies water to the Poatina power station on its northeastern shore.

This part of Tasmania is still wild – expect dirt tracks, lots of mud (and snow!), and very few places to stay and eat.
