Staying at a revitalised hydro village in the central highlands was most enjoyable.We stayed in one of the lake side villas that was well appointed,cosy,clean and quiet.(windows could have been cleaned was our only winge !)
The choice of accommodation is great from camp sites to houses
A perfect place to stay overnight or longer on your travels.
Remember to take supplies as there are no shops,but a cafe for breakfast and a restaurant for dinner (not Sunday night)

Room Tip: only telstra phone coverage at certain spots in the village

Spectacular setting, situated in the heart of Tassie's highlands, providing the perfect opportunity to unwind. The Lodge is gorgeous, renovated Art Deco accommodation, the highlight of which is the Library Lounge featuring honesty bar and a 200 plus bottle whisky collection. Book a fishing tour, day spa treatment, time in the hot tub, a whisky tasting. Explore the wilderness with a range of walk options or drives. The Highlander restaurant offers no fuss, down to earth service, it doesn't need fancy as the food speaks for itself, which also proves value for money. A great getaway for a couples weekend, also cottage and caravan options in the village for families.

We chose to stay in The Lodge at Tarraleah for two nights as part of a holiday on the west coast. Our room was five star with a separate loungeroom, beautiful bathroom with spa and heated floors and plenty of storage for luggage in a dressing area. French doors led to a private terrace with views over the valley. We had the Lodge to ourselves and relaxed in the communal lounge with a roaring fire on one cooler night. Breakfast at the cafe was also a hit. If you are travelling from Hobart to the west coast do yourself a favour and stay a night or two!

Wow what a special place! I loved the feel of this little art deco village the minute we drove in. The grounds for camping are beautiful (march flies are plentiful-pack aero guard). We had dinner at the lovely restaurant which was a little expensive but had a lovely atmosphere. Breakfast at the cafe was delicious too. The history of the Hydro is absolutely fascinating and the visitor centre info section is excellent. I would definately recommend a visit to Tarraleah when traveling from the West Coast through to Hobart.

When we booked a cottage at Tarraleah, I was expecting that someone had bought a line of old cottages along the main road and added some mod-cons. Actually, someone bought the whole town, and restored the Art-Deco houses to their original glory, plus some mod-cons. The village is a couple of km off the highway, and the entire place is either accommodation (including cheaper dorm-style, it appeared), or a conference building (all original) or the restaurant. There's a central common with some trees and a fountain, and the village is built around it. We stayed in No. 2. Nos 1, 2, and 3 are the most private, looking out over the deep gorge with it's power stations, which you can't see at all. The water pipes are visible, something which I normally would hate, but it's actually part of the history of the place, and I found it fascinating.
It's an amazing place, our cottage/house feeling like my old great-aunt's, only much cleaner! Heaps of space, and a great base for the many lake-based activities in the area.
