Pumphouse Point, Lake St Clair

If you long for the sound of silence other than birdsong, the 'plopping' of wild trout in pristine waters and the rustling of wombats and wallabies in the bush, this is the place to come. For you will be staying 250 metres from the shore of Australia's deepest lake, Lake St Clair in the Central Highlands of Tasmania, in the restored pumphouse now known as Pumphouse Point, Australia's newest wilderness lodge.  Those who feel more comfortable closer to shore can choose a room at the Lake House, and be just as close to nature. This is fly fishing paradise, and with one of Tasmania's top fly fishermen, Ken Orr, based here you can be sure of some serious angling action. Take a break from the line, and enjoy bushwalking, wildlife spotting, birdwatching, star gazing or just relaxing on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
