The Marlborough Highway is a minor highway in Tasmania. It links the Lyell Highway to the Lake Highway and cuts short the otherwise very long journey from the West Coast to the Central Highlands.[1]

The road leaves the Lyell Highway near Bronte and travels overland to Miena, on the Great Lake. There are no settlements along its route.

The road is unsealed,[2] and in times of heavy snow it cannot be passed.
