Central Highlands Fly Fishing

Tasmania is one of the last great wild fisheries. Glassy lagoons, remote highland lakes and freestone rivers provide seclusion and excellent dry fly fishing from September to May. There are over 3,000 lakes, rivers and streams in Tassie. You’ll be excited to discover almost all of them hold wild brown and rainbow trout. The varied terrain also creates some pretty memorable challenges.

Do & See

Detached from mainland Australia, the island of Tasmania offers a very different experience from your typical Australian holiday. There are luxurious guided walks into the wilderness, wild ocean cruises where you’ll enter sea caves and gaze at the tallest cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, ocean kayaking, sailing, mountain climbing, bushwalking and wine tasting. The locals love to share stories of the island too. Expect ghost tours by candlelight, Aboriginal storytelling by campfires, and history that unravels as you explore mining towns and fishing villages of the island.
