Travel Tuesday | Off the grid - Pumphouse Point, Tasmania
“The story of Pumphouse Point begins twenty thousand years ago, when the earth is frozen over. A rumbling glacier grinds down an alpine landscape, forging a steep ravine in its wake. Filling with melted snow and freezing rain, the deepest lake in Australia is born.”
Pumphouse Point, a heritage listed former Hydro Station has been transformed into boutique accommodation 250m out on the picturesque Lake St Clair.
Located within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Lake St Clair is Australia’s deepest lake and forms part of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.
Rooms are spread over 3 levels with either a lake or landscape view, plush king size beds and Tasmanian timber features. Take time to relax in the communal lounge areas with help yourself bars and open fires, explore your surroundings by taking a bush-walk, a mountain bike ride or a spot of fishing... it really is a place to unwind, relax and immerse yourself in the beauty that surrounds you.
