Conara was by-passed by the Midland Highway in 1969. It is a small village with no more than a few houses around a railway junction. It is an important siding for trains but has the most unsafe level crossings in Tasmania, with the railway intersecting with the highway.
The visitor information centre for Conara can be found in Longford.
