The midlands of Tasmania are famed for their agricultural and heritage values, while the central highlands is renowned for its beautiful isolated wilderness value. Major towns in the midlands are Oatlands, Campbell Town and Ross, while the most significant town in central Tasmania is Bothwell.

Tasmania's central highlands, consisting of a series of mountains and lakes in the Great Western Tiers range, are largely contained in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park. The spectacular World Heritage-listed scenery and easy bushwalks around Cradle Mountain make it Tasmania's most popular destination.

Lake St. Clair, gouged out of the rock by glaciers, is over 200 metres deep and is a popular fishing and camping site. The Lakes region is a trout fishing paradise, with Great Lake and Arthurs Lake being particularly popular.

Many midlands towns possess historic value, having been created as stopping points where travellers between Hobart and Launceston could rest and change horses. There are many craft shops, making midlands towns well worth a detour when travelling.
