Pumphouse Point is one of the most exciting developments in Tasmania's wilderness tourism for decades. 'Floating' above Australia's deepest lake, the lodge is actually at the end of a 250 metre flume in the middle of Lake St Clair at the southern end of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Just 18 rooms within the fomer pumphouse (built for the hydroelectric scheme) and the Lakehouse will provide gorgeous accommodation with stunning views over the lake and the wilderness. If you love walking, wildife, fishing, birding or just lying back in wonder at the stars, this is the place for you. Due to open in January 2015, Pumphouse Point must be on your Tasmanian itinerary but with just 18 rooms it will be in demand so make sure you book soon.
