Lake Mackintosh

Lake Mackintosh is a Hydro Tasmania lake near Tullah in Tasmania’s west. Tullah is a former mining town, An hour’s drive north of Strahan (80 kilometres/50 miles) and ninety minutes south of Burnie (110 kilometres/68 miles).
Like all Hydro Tasmania lakes, Lake Mackintosh is stocked with plump trout. You can launch your boat at a number of boat ramps on the Lake and spend the day fishing, or enjoy a picnic or barbecue on the shore.
Literally surrounded by lakes, Tullah is a haven for boating and fishing enthusiasts. You can enjoy a number of walks in the area, including the challenging bushwalk to the summit of Mt Farrell which is rewarded with stunning views. Once accessible only by rail, Tullah now has a tourist railway – the restored steam train Wee Georgie Wood – which operates on weekends during the summer months. You can also join a number of guided tours in the area including trout fishing, horse riding and four wheel drive tours.
You will need a licence to fish for trout in Tasmania’s lakes. A free brochure – ‘Fishing Code for Anglers’ is available from licence-selling agents and the Inland Fisheries Commission.
