Get lost in the Wilderness: Pumphouse Point, Tasmania

Lake St Clair Pumphouse Point, Tasmania

What an extraordinary sight. 250 metres from Tasmania’s Lake St Clair shoreline, sits the newly re-developed Pumphouse Point, a 12-room property that can truly boast of one of the most idyllic lake views one could dare to dream up.

Surrounded by lush, wild forest and expansive waters, this place sets a perfect serene scene if complete tranquillity is what you’re after. And there’s more beauty to be found in the building itself – it once housed powerful, working water turbines to generate hydro-electricity from the lake and today, those original features remain on show beneath a glass floor in the main lobby area.
