Why we like it
- The temple-like Pumphouse building is set 240m out over Australia’s deepest lake. No other accommodation in Australia is set over a lake, let alone 240m into the middle!
- A former hydro-electric pump station; It has been stunningly refurbished inside with award-winning architecture, but the exterior has been untouched to preserve heritage features.
- It’s located inside Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area, meaning you’re immersed in world class wilderness even when you’re inside by the fire.
- Your stay is less about luxury and more about authentic wilderness experiences and personal connection; here you are not mollycoddled, but instead invited to create your own adventure with a range of outdoor activities, honesty bars, in-room larders and a shared-table dining experience.
