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. It’s a tourism feat like no other, taking over a decade of determination from local legend Simon Currant. Having opened in 2015, 19 boutique rooms and suites were thoughtfully created within the 1930’s pumphouse, showcasing the simple excellence of the art deco era. But it’s not about the rooms here. It’s an entirely unique experience, from honesty bars and fire feasts, e-bikes and bushwalks, highland massages and rowboats… immerse yourself in the wilderness like you never have before.
