Penstock Lagoon

Leaving Hobart and the South we had not yet ventured into the Highland Lakes area so travelled first to Penstock Lagoon. This is a free camping area provided by Hydro Tasmania and has a new drop toilet. Right up to the water front there are multiple small areas and this is one of four camping areas along the shoreline.

Arriving on a Saturday the Lagoon was busy with fishing activities; all these lakes are restricted to fly fishing only and are stocked with Trout.

The tracks into here are a little narrow in places but we did mange to weave through to a pleasant water side spot. There were several vans here but all well away from each other and very peaceful…until it snowed! Not cold enough to settle but enough to make the surface of the Lagoon look earily steamy!
