Tasmania - Midlands & Central Highlands (PDF Chapter)

Hawthorn hedgerows, rows of poplars, roadside mansions…Tasmania’s Midlands have a dis-tinct English-countryside feel, while the Central Highlands feature subalpine moorlands and trout-filled lakes. On the highlands’ southern fringe is the Derwent Valley, studded with vineyards, hop fields and orchards.
