The Great Western Tiers

his a MUST place to visit ! The scenery is breath taking and a fantastic place tp be Photographs don,t do the justice this area deserves

 

 

The Great Western Tiers are the northern face of the Tasmanian Central Plateau, rising upto1444 m above sea level.The highest of the peaks is Ironstone Mountain, at 1,444m. We passed thru the quaint town on Deloraine on the way to the great Western and was intrigued by the tiny sculptures that are displayed on posts at regular intervals along the main high street ,the town was too busy to photograph them all

The Great Lake is a half man made lake located in the central north region of Tasmania within the sparsely inhabited Central Highlands municipality. Its original size was much smaller, it is dammed at its southern outflow for hydro-electricity production. It is Australia’s second largest freshwater lake, 1,030 metres above sea level. The lake has an area of 114 km². It is used for hydro electric power, fishing and tourism  Nearby towns Liaweena and Miena are popular holiday shack destinations for local tourists, despite the area’s reputation as being one of the coldest places in the generally mild-weathered state.
