The township of Bronte Park, just 4 kilometres from Tasmania’s geographical centre, once thrived with a police station, post office, school, cinema, hospital, dairy and a church. The General Store has outlived them all, as have three examples of historic single men’s huts, reminding of the harsh living conditions of an earlier time.
Today, visitors staying at Bronte Park, can enjoy modern-day comforts at Highland Cabins and Cottages. The property offers fully self-contained accommodation, spa cabins, family cottages, studio apartments, and a private lakeside lodge. This location is a jewel for keen anglers, with eleven lakes under twenty minutes away. Visit Bronte Park on route from Strahan for kayaking, bushwalking, boat hire, wildlife tours and the very best guided trout fishing on the island.
