Tarraleah is a small holiday village in the rugged wilderness of Tasmania's Central Highlands, on the edge of Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage Area.
The countryside around Tarraleah is known for its alpine lakes and mountains and many hydro-electric dams, canals and giant steel pipe-ways, while the forests of the area provide spectacular scenery.
The Hydro Electric Commission built the township in the 1930s to house Tasmania's pioneering hydro electricity officers and management. Today, the town of 1920s and 30s wooden homes has been restored as an elegant award-winning wilderness resort.
The town's central lodge, built in the 1930s for the Hydro engineers and company directors, has been restored to the Art Deco elegance of its early days when money and craftsmanship were no object, while the town's cottages, hand built by Tasmanian craftsmen in the 1930s, have also been restored as self-contained one to three bedroom holiday cottages.
The lodge, which is a short drive to Lake St Clair, is ecognised by Luxury Travel Magazine as one of the top 20 fishing lodges in the world.
The village includes a highland pub with great food, local wine and beers and in the lodge, there's a fine dining restaurant with over 300 wines and 200 whiskys..
Fresh water trout fishing, boating, bushwalking, mountain biking, kayaking and golf are all popular activities in and around the township.
The site is also host to an enormous range of Tasmanian flora and fauna and it's common to see quolls, wallabies, wombats and echidnas wandering around the town, all on the same evening.

100 Years of Hydro

100 Years of Hydro is an exhibition that tells the story of the past one hundred years, from construction of the first power station, Waddamana, to the novel technologies being used today.
Through the electricity generated by hydropower, the state's manufacturing and agriculture industries have flourished; Hydro people built roads and created villages where none previously existed; the migrant workforce recruited to work on power schemes shaped Tasmania's culture; and our engineering and technological breakthroughs have changed the way the world approaches the challenge of generating energy.
Housed largely within a 40-foot custom-designed container as well as external industrial frames, this dynamic, audio-visual exhibition portrays the past, present and possible future of the Hydro.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to see historical photos and artefacts, learn about Tasmania's world famous hydropower system, and discover the fascinating stories of the people who built the business.

Wall in the Wilderness - The

The Wall In The Wilderness is situated at Derwent Bridge in Tasmania's Central Highlands. It is Australia's most ambitious art project undertaken in recent years. By 2015 creator/designer, Greg Duncan plans to carve the history of the highlands in 100 metres of timber, most of which will be in our rare Huon Pine.
The beautifully carved works set out in relief sculpture depict the history, hardship and perseverance of the people in the Central Highlands and pay homage to the individuals who settled and protected the area.
Duncan is already known for the uncanny realism he brings to his work and his pieces are sought after by collectors around the world. Each metre of the panels, including horses, thylacines and foresters represents a month's work.
There is nothing like this anywhere else in Australia. The Wall is a world-class experience.
