In the middle of Tasmania, on the southern hemisphere’s deepest lake, awaits one of Australia’s most iconic wilderness experiences: Pumphouse Point. Walk deep into the fjord-like surrounds of Lake St Clair, explore the giant myrtle forests, tread softly on the moss-covered understory and forget the world you left behind. At day’s end, return to the sanctuary of the Pumphouse to share tables and tales with fellow guests before drifting away by the log fire. Surrounded by some of the most dramatic natural landscape on the planet, the scene is set for your new favourite memory.
19 boutique rooms and suites have been thoughtfully created within the historical fabric of the pumphouse. But it’s not about the rooms here. It’s an entirely unique experience, from help-yourself honesty bars and fire feasts, e-bikes and bushwalks, highland massages and rowboats… immerse yourself in the wilderness like you never have before. Named Australia best unique accommodation in 2021, stays at Pumphouse Point include breakfast, lunch, dinner and activities.
Constructed more than 70 years ago to pump water for hydro-electricity, the iconic Pumphouse has been given new life as a boutique wilderness retreat inside Tasmania’s World Heritage Area. With the incredible Pumphouse building sitting 250m out from the shore and the stunningly refurbished Lakehouse among the trees on the lake’s edge, Pumphouse Point showcases the simple excellence of the art deco era and offers a spectacular connection to the lake, the mountains and the forests beyond
