Lake Chisholm

Point of Interest


Lake Chisholm Track, West Coast, Tasmania.


Lake Chisholm is one of several stops on the South Arthur Forest Drive, a loop road south of Smithton in the Tarkine wilderness. It was formed when a sink-hole in the limestone countryside became blocked. Water flowing into the hole had nowhere to go, and accumulated until a decent sized lake had formed. Being in a low lying area, the lake is sheltered from the winds common in the area, and so the surface is often still and mirror-like. The lake is accessed via a sealed road. From the car park, a 500 metre walking trail leads down to the lake. The forest it passes through is simply stunning in its lushness, and the path is gentle enough to allow for its full appreciation.
