Tarraleah is a small town in the Central Highlands of Tasmania is 126 km north-west of the state capital Hobart, and slightly closer to Queenstown.
The township was built in the 1930's by the Hydro Electric Commission to house Tasmania's pioneering hydro electricity officers and management.
The area is noted for its alpine lakes and mountains, and many hydro-electric dams, canals and giant steel pipeways.
After a multi million-dollar redevelopment, the former Hydro construction village has become an estate that comprises Tarraleah Lodge with accommodation, recreation, and dining options. Fresh water trout fishing, boating, bushwalking, mountain biking and kayaking are all popular activities in and around the township.
Tarraleah is also the home to a high altitude golf course.
