‘Convenient, central location’

The Central Highlands Lodge, located on the shores of the Great Lake in the highland village of Miena, is the gateway to Tasmania’s central plateau and world premier trout fishing waters with over 3,000 lakes.

It is the most centrally located lodge to the famous fisheries of the Western Lakes, Arthurs Lake, Penstock and Little Pine lagoons, all of which hold an abundance of wild brown trout. The scenic drive from either Launceston or Hobart takes around 1½ hours, and the lodge is located conveniently to all of Tasmania – wherever you are or want to go, it’s not far away.

The Central Highlands Lodge can host your Meetings, Conferences, Family Birthdays and Small Weddings.

Restaurant & Bar

The lodge has a lounge, bar, a cosy fireplace and restaurant/dining.

The menu is one to look forward to and includes traditional hearty home-cooked meals, soups, delicious desserts and a superb collection of Tasmanian wines.


The Central Highlands Lodge has always been a traditional meeting place for both the locals and keen fishers, discussing the hatch on Little Pine or the big one you bagged, over a cold beer or a warming glass of wine around the fireplace.

The lodge also has its own private lake where you can brush up on your fly casting, perhaps with a lesson or two from a local guide. You may even get a chance to tangle with one of the 2 to 4 lb wily browns, that are often seen cruising the edges!


After relaxing in the lounge by cosy log fires, comfortable rooms with crisp sheets on a pre-warmed bed await you.

Our accommodation features ensuite bathrooms, heating, electric blankets, fridge, TV, Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities, with wader hanging racks outside.
