Thousand Lakes Lodge - Liawenee

Book your stay



Situated on Lake Augusta and facing an alpine plateau, Thousand Lakes Wilderness Lodge is not just a haven from the elements, it???s an essential addition to your alpine wilderness experience. Stay a night or two or even three, no day is the same in this place.

You can experience all that the highlands can conjure up, from the inside looking out. One of the lounges will have you transfixed as you watch the day unfold in front of you. There???s intense alpine sunrises that you???ve never experienced before, through to bright sunsets when the wildlife procession begins. In between there may be blue skies, storm clouds that roll in then out or even sleet and snow.

Inside you can learn about the history, culture and wilderness characters of the area. You can relax by the roaring double sized open fireplace whilst sipping a quality Tasmanian wine or even a warm cider.

There???s a place like no other; almost otherworldly, it???s remote, barren but beautiful and unique. It???s a place that can be serene and silent yet in an instant; cold, raw and unfriendly but comfort is always close by.

1000 Lakes is in the Central Plateau World Heritage Area of Tasmania, to the West is the Walls of Jerusalem to the East the Great Lakes and is, as the name suggests the ideal base for exploring the 1000 lakes area.

Here in this alpine environment the air is noticeably clear and the silence is inspiring, on a still day; birds, bugs and fish surfacing within your reach. On days when the wind is high and the temperature drops, it will take your breath-away and find you in awe of its harshness.
