THOU­SAND LAKES WILDER­NESS LODGE 1247 Lake Augusta Road, Li­awe­nee, Cen­tral High­lands, Tas­ma­nia; thou­sand­ Verdict: A com­fort­able, cosy base from which to head out and ex­plore the stark beauty of the Cen­tral Plateau; a great place to re­turn for din­ner, hav­ing worked up an ap­petite on a full-day bush­walk. Score: We rated: The lo­ca­tion of this lodge is unique – an is­land of civil­i­sa­tion in the mid­dle of nowhere. If you’re look­ing for a cosy refuge from Tas­ma­nia’s of­ten harsh el­e­ments in front of a roar­ing fire, this is it. We’d change: The rooms are just a lit­tle bit func­tional – lack­ing the warm feel­ing of the lounges. Notes: We paid $345 dol­lars a night for a Lodge Queen Pre­mium Room, which in­cludes a con­ti­nen­tal break­fast. There is also the op­tion to hire e-bikes: elec­tric-boosted moun­tain bikes to ex­plore the area.
