Made from native timber, our shack is a cosy fisherman's retreat fitted out with all the necessities and extra luxuries like WiFi and Netflix. The shack has 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms: 2 x queen, 1 x double. The kitchen is well equipped and well stocked with the pantry basics to cook up a feast.

The space
Our Central Highlands shack at Miena is a quality solid timber build by a local builder. It sits at the top of the block with glimpses of the Great Lake. The drive to Miena is about 1:30hr from Launceston and about 1:45hr from Hobart. It's perfectly located for trout fishing or just to sit back with the cosy fire and hopefully catch a glimpse at the local deer and wallabies grazing around the shack.

Enjoy fishing at the many lakes during the day and wander down to the Central Highlands Lodge for an evening drink or dinner. If you enjoy cooking as much we we do, you will find the kitchen very well equipped.

We offer 3 bedrooms: 2 with queen beds and 1 with a double bed, all with electric blankets, high thread count sheets and 100% goose down quilts. There are two bathrooms, one of which is an ensuite. We have a single floor mattress available on request that can go in the double room.

The shack has parking for 2 vehicles with a boat turning area, or 4 vehicles if not using the boat turning bay.

Miena is a quiet and remote town that primarily attracts trout fishing enthusiasts. The shack is in a quiet street away from the highway.

Where you’ll be

Miena, Tasmania, Australia

The shack is on a small residential block and neighboured by other shacks. Miena is a small fishing town and has a general store with a petrol pump and payphone, The Great Lake Hotel and The Central Highlands Lodge, both of which provide dinner and drinks. The Lodge is within walking distance but you'll need to drive to the pub. Grocery shopping must be done prior to driving up to the Central Highlands.
