Places To Stay

We are often asked by our new clients for recommendations on places to stay, so below we have put together a small list of our favourites that our repeat clients have given us great feedback about, while keeping a variety of budgets in mind.

The first group of accommodation places are those that are on fisheries or give you direct access to fishing waters. As you can imagine, many of our clients are very keen on fly fishing and wish to stay at places that mesh well with the pursuit of this pass time.

The second group of places are those that are local to Launceston and offer the conveniences of the city and are of close proximity for us to collect you from on our guiding days. I’ll provide some information with links to their website below:


Accommodation on Trout Fisheries:


Currawong Lakes

If you’re looking for a truly exceptional place to stay in Tasmania, we can’t recommend Currawong Lakes enough! This hidden gem, expertly managed by Richard and Meryn Krimmer, offers a range of self-contained accommodations that cater to various preferences.

From cozy bush cabins surrounded by nature’s beauty to a charming lakeside chalet, Currawong Lakes provides a unique and unforgettable experience. The property boasts three magnificent trout lakes, where you’ll have the opportunity to catch wild Brown Trout that naturally spawn in the area. To enhance your fly fishing adventure, there are also Rainbow Trout stocked in the lakes.

But that’s not all—Currawong Lakes has something for everyone. Get ready for an exhilarating experience at one of the best “sporting clays” shooting ranges you’ll ever come across. Even if you’re unsure about such an activity, we encourage you to give it a try—it’s heaps of fun!
