Poatina, is a former Hydro village, nestled in the Northern Midlands looking back towards Cressy and Longford. Approx 45 minutes drive from Launceston, 1:15 hr from Devonport, 2 hours from Hobart. 

Upon arrival you could mistake this quiet little town to that of a ghost town, however there is an abundance of activity around.  The view Cafe, tea rooms and licensed golf club hold refreshments and food, the local hall, community centre, arts gallery provide things to do.  The locals are all lovely.


Not far up the hill is the great lakes.

There is quite comfortable accommodation within the village.
