The Steppes

Access

Getting there

The Steppes Historic Site The Steppes Historic Site is located on the Lake Highway (A5) in the Central Highland’s of Tasmania about 35 kilometres north-west of Bothwell. The Steppes are about a two hour drive from Hobart and about an hour and a half from Launceston. However, weather conditions in the highlands can include periods of poor visibility, rain, frost and snow and such conditions can increase travel times.

Visitor facilities

In fine weather conditions, the site is a most pleasant location for bush picnics. Toilet facilities and drinking water are available. There is no formal camping area, but for those happy just ‘to pull off the road’, the area opposite the homestead is available for overnight camping.
