Artist's Description

Lake Barrington is the second of three large freshwater hydroelectric impoundments constructed across the Forth River and is close to the small township of Sheffield. The lake is subject to regular water level fluctuations but is the major recreational water on the Northwest coast. Lake Barrington caters for all aquatic water sports and is one of four lakes in Tasmania classified as recreational water. Excellent boat launching and camping areas are easily accessible.

Lake Barrington is a man-made Hydro Tasmania lake in north west Tasmania’s Forth Valley. The Lake is a 45-minute drive south of Devonport (40 kilomtres/25 miles).
Lake Barrington is best known for its 2,000 metre, eight-lane international-standard rowing course, used for rowing, canoeing and water skiing competitions. The 183-hectare Lake Barrington State Recreation Area hugs the Lake’s foreshore. Here, tall eucalypt and lush rainforest shelters a diversity of native wildlife. The Recreation Area has a large day visitor shelter with wood barbecues, picnic tables and stretches of lawn along the shore. Toilet facilities on the eastern side of the Lake have wheelchair access and a kiosk operates on weekends throughout summer and during major sporting events. There are also boat-launching ramps on both sides of the Lake. Camping in the State Recreation Area is not permitted, but campsites can be found at the northern end of the Lake at Kentish Park. Bring along your own equipment and spend long summer days here rowing, water skiing, power boating, canoeing and model yachting.
Twenty kilometres long and 30 metres deep, Lake Barrington was formed in 1969 with the construction of the 84 metre high Devils Gate Dam on the Forth River.
