Pine Lake Walk

pine lake bushwalk Bushwalk Description

The Pine Lake walk provides and opportunity to get close to one of Tasmania’s rarest trees without having to go on an extended bushwalk. The pencil pine is an ancient species that evolved before flowering plants, and is only found in the highlands of Tasmania.

The walk has no steps and is wheelchair friendly.  The walk is an ideal opportunity for those unable or climb or walk long distances to experience the Tasmanian wilderness.

 

Many of the conifers found in Tasmania are unique to the state. The pencil pine is generally restricted to sub-alpine areas above 800 m. Like its relation the King Billy pine, it can reach ages over 1200 years. Pencil pines are often seen around the shores of highland lakes and tarns, and create a unique ambience in these beautiful areas of Tasmania.

 

The Meander Forest Reserve is a haven for those people who love outdoor activities such as bushwalking, picnics and adventure activities such as rock climbing, abseiling or horse riding.

Please Note:

  • Snow and ice can make the track slippery
  • Carry warm clothing, even though it is only a short walk
  • Pets, fi rearms and bicycles are not permitted
  • No facilities at Pine Lake. Picnic and toilet facilities are located approximately 30 minutes drive away at Liffey Falls

There is no accommodation immediately near the Pine Lake Walk. The town of Deloraine is just a short 30-minute drive and offers a range of accommodation options. Alternatively Launceston and Devonport are just over 1-hour away from Pine Lake Walk and both offer a range of accommodation choices from caravan parks, bed and breakfast through to 5-star luxury.

Pine Lake Walk

Pine Lake is located app. 30 kilometres south of Deloraine on the Lake Highway. It is a small lake located only a few hundred metres from the highway.

The lake has a grove of ancient Pencil Pines at each end, and the pines seem out of place in the relatively treeless rocky alpine terrain surrounding the lake.  A board walk has been built from the highway to the edge of the lake just 700 metres long.
