Lake Gordon - Lake Pedder - Strathgordon
Take a good sealed road 150 kilometres west from Mt Field National Park to reach Lake Gordon and Lake Pedder, set in Tasmania's wild south-west wilderness and ringed with rugged mountain ranges.
Both lakes are a mecca for fishermen with some of the best trout fishing in the state.
Near Strathgordon is the mighty Gordon Dam, the site of Australia's longest vertical abseil. A visitor information centre is on the decking, high above the spectacular dam, open Tuesday to Sunday.
A chalet caters for visitor requirements with hire boats and fishing guides.
Lake Pedder and its companion Lake Gordon, together comprise the largest inland freshwater storage in Australia, covering more than 500 square kilometres and holding more than 37 times the volume of water than Sydney Harbour.
Check the weather forecasts before you go on the lake as conditions change fast.
Park passes must be purchased for entry to Tasmania's national parks.
