Lake Rosebery is a man-made reservoir located in the West Coast region of Tasmania, Australia. The reservoir was formed by the damming of the Pieman River by the Bastyan Dam by Hydro Tasmania, near the village of Tullah. Feeder rivers include the dammed Mackintosh and Murchison rivers.

The diverted Emu Bay Railway line and the Wee Georgie Wood Railway line run close to the lake.
