Bronte Lagoon is a Hydro Tasmania lake near Bronte Park in Tasmania’s central lakes district. The Lagoon is two hours’ north west of Hobart (150 kilometres/93 miles) on the Lyell Highway.
Like most Hydro Tasmania lakes, Bronte Lagoon offers excellent trout fishing. Here you will find a large self-sustaining population of brown trout and a smaller population of rainbow trout which is supplemented by stocking. The Lagoon is flanked by grassy paddocks, with large areas of woodland on the Lake’s southern and south-eastern shores, creating a perfect fly-fishing environment. You can launch your boat at the Bronte Dam boat ramp to spend the day fishing in a place that attracts anglers from around the world.
There are no formal camping areas at Bronte Lagoon, but informal camping is permitted near the dam, at Bronte Bay, Woodwards Bay and near Hut Bay generic sildenafil. A general store and range of accommodation are also available at nearby Bronte Park Highland Village.
You will need a licence to fish for trout in Tasmania’s lakes. A free brochure – ‘Fishing Code for Anglers’ is available from licence-selling agents and the Inland Fisheries Commission.
Hikers have been visiting this scenic area in the heart of the heritage listed Tasmanian Wilderness area for decades, enjoying the day walks near the lake or the famed Overland Track. If you’re already carrying your own tent and sleeping gear, why not make a memorable camp nestled in the trees within short walking distance to the water’s edge. It is the ideal location for both campers and bushwalkers or for schools, clubs and family bookings. There are powered and unpowered sites for tents, caravans and small motorhomes.
Our Bunkhouse provides basic sleeping accommodation in keeping with the style of the rustic timber huts of the Overland track, enjoyed mostly by backpackers and hikers whose modest accommodation requirements can be met with a simple bed and heated shelter.
