The Great Lake and the surrounding
area is better known for great fishing. It is a bleak place
but with it's own raw beauty.
There is a hotel at the south western
side of the lake at Miena. There is a Rangers Station and
picnic area further north at Liawenee. There is an excellent
information room, picnic area with wood BBQ and very clean rest rooms.
Heading off to the west from
Liawenee is a road to Lakes Augusta and Ada - along with an
estimated 1,000 lakes further on!
The area has little scenic attraction.
However, there is a geomorphological feature known as 'Lunettes"
near Lake Augusta. They were formed by the side of some lakes
after the last glacial period. They are the only alpine
Lunettes in Australia. More information
