The Waterhouse Conservation Area lies on the north-east coast of Tasmania about 100 km north-east of Launceston and about 50 km east of Bridport. It is popular place for camping, with several sites available – although there are only basic camping facilities and you will need to be totally self-sufficient. Other popular uses of the reserve include hunting, wildlife viewing, fishing, and recreational vehicle use.
Access into the reserve is provided from the Waterhouse (B82) Road. Branching off the Waterhouse Road are minor roads to the reserve, including Blackmans Lagoon Road and Homestead Road. Off Homestead Road, access to Big Waterhouse Lake is via Big Waterhouse Lake Road.
Homestead Road accesses the principal day use and camping areas in the north. The southern section known as Blackmans Lagoon is accessed by the Blackmans Lagoon Road which runs off the B82.
You are welcome to bring your dog, but please keep dogs under control at all times to protect wildlife. No other pets are allowed.
While elsewhere in Tasmania people are tucking up by the fire and going into winter hibernation, North East Tasmania comes alive to celebrate and showcase local arts and crafts annually on the June long weekend.Discover more… + MAP
