Accessed directly from Highland Lakes Road, 33km south of Deloraine, this walk leads to Pine Lake via the Pine Lake Nature Trail. Pine Lake is a stunningly beautiful lake, surrounded by pencil pine trees. This short, delightful, wheelchair accessible walk allows you to experience the Tasmanian alpine wilderness and see the rare pencil pines without doing an extended bushwalk. It is easily accessible for anyone using the highway between Deloraine and Miena. Simply follow the boardwalk from the road where you park straight to the lake. Picnic and toilet facilities are located approximately 30 minutes drive away at either Liffey Falls or Liawenee. Temperatures around the lake can be chilly, so bring some warm clothing. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
