Lake Barrington - Devils Gate Dam


Lake Barrington is a man-made Hydro Tasmania lake in north-west Tasmania's Forth Valley. Lake Barrington is best known for its 2000 metre, eight-lane international-standard rowing course, used for rowing, canoeing and water skiing competitions.
The Lake Barrington State Recreation Area hugs the lake's foreshore where tall eucalypt and lush rainforest shelters a diversity of native wildlife.
The Recreation Area has a large day visitor shelter with wood barbecues, picnic tables and stretches of lawn along the shore. Toilet facilities on the eastern side of the lake have wheelchair access and a kiosk operates on weekends throughout summer and during major sporting events. There are also boat-launching ramps on both sides of the lake.
Camping in the State Recreation Area is not permitted, but campsites can be found at the northern end at Kentish Park. Bring along your own equipment and spend long summer days here rowing, water skiing, power boating, canoeing and model yachting.
Lake Barrington is 20 kilometres long and was formed in 1969 with the construction of the 84 metre high Devils Gate Dam on the Forth River.
The lake is a 45-minute drive (40 kilometres) south of Devonport.
