Wihareja: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Arthurs Lake


This popular angling location, east of Great Lake on the edge of the Central Plateau, has good facilities for boat launching and camping. To reach Arthurs Lake from the south, take the A5 for 50 km beyond Bothwell. From the north, follow the B51 for 60 km south of Cressy.
This is a high altitude and exposed location and weather in the highlands can change fast, making boating conditions dangerous. Please carry all required safety equipment and check local weather forecasts before you launch.

Waddamana Power Station Museum


The Waddamana Power Station, located almost in the geographical centre of Tasmania, is now a fascinating hydro-electric museum.
It is a tribute to the beginning of integrated hydro-electric development in Tasmania, featuring an array of machinery, memorabilia, photographs and artefacts. In 1916 electricity generated by harnessing the power of falling water "hydro-electricity", first came to Hobart from Waddamana Power Station.
The museum provides visitors with a sense of what life in the central highlands was like back in the early 1900s. Exhibits include an extensive photographic display, original machinery, memorabilia and artefacts from the power station and the people.
Tours can be booked for groups of ten people or more.
Accommodation is available at the Waddamana Field Study Centre, which is the original village built to accommodate workers who constructed Waddamana.

Wihareja: Events

Liawenee Trout Weekend


Come and see hundreds of wild brown trout on their annual spawning run at Liawenee, Great Lake. Watch the trout being trapped and stripped of eggs for culture by staff of the Inland Fisheries Service.
The hatchling are grown to young fish and used to restock Tasmania's legendary wild trout fishery. This is a fishery management activity that's been going on for nearly 150 years and is a unique piece of Tasmania's angling heritage.
While you're there, you can take a helicopter ride above the Lake or a bus ride along the Canal. You can visit trade exhibits, with boats and fishing gear, and check out the displays with live freshwater fish aquaria and kids can catch a trout for free in the kid's fish-out pond.
You can enjoy refreshments, entertainment, competitions and give-aways.
The event is a must for angling enthusiasts but suitable for the whole family.
