Miena

Miena is a small lakeside town with excellent fishing, stunning scenery and lakeside rest and play.

Located in the heart of Tasmania's central highlands, Miena is a popular shack village for holiday-makers and keen fishers with Great Lake the main attraction. This is Australia's second largest freshwater lake. It sits one kilometre above sea level and supplies hydroelectricity as well as a bounty of fresh fish for keen anglers.

It's also one of the coldest places in Tasmania, swelling in population in the warmer months and providing a stunning snow-covered landscape in winter that's best enjoyed by a log fire.

Activities in Miena are many and varied, from trout fishing and bushwalking to bird-watching and lakeside relaxation.

The nearby Central Plateau Conservation Area is known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes and contains a stunning glacial and alpine landscape that forms part of the Tasmanian World Heritage Wilderness Area.

Accommodation in and around Miena includes lakeside hotels and self-contained lodges and shacks.

Miena is a 1 hr 30-min drive (110 km) south from Launceston and a 1 hr 40-min drive (132 km) north from Hobart.
