Pumphouse Point is an extraordinary property located in the middle of the Tasmanian wilderness, set atop Australia’s deepest lake. Two former industrial pumphouses, built in 1940, have been transformed into just 18 rooms, offering intimate access to one of the world’s most pristine natural environments.
Choose between the Pumphouse, set 250m out on the lake, or the Shorehouse, located on the lake’s edge. In the Pumphouse, floor to ceiling windows give the impression of floating on water without ever leaving the comfort of your luxuriously appointed bed. In contrast, the Shorehouse offers intimacy, nestled among the trees. Both options provide a front row seat to Mother Nature’s stunning display of beauty.
Though it may be tough to tear yourself away from the comforts of your room, Pumphouse Point offers a number of unique experiences and activities. Choose from over 100km of impressive nature walks through giant rainforest ferns and towering eucalypt stags. Conquer Australia’s famous Overland Track, a 6-day trek from Cradle Mountain to Lake St. Clair. Experience world-class fly fishing just outside your door. Or visit hand-carved artistic masterpiece, The Wall, set into massive Huon Pines.
After days spent feeding the adventurer within, feed your belly with a delicious food and beverage selection, specially prepared by renowned chefs using fresh, local ingredients. Then retire to one of the property’s lounges, where you can warm yourself by the fire while taking in the majestic scenery. Come experience the place the Sunday Times UK declared, “the most serenely beautiful boutique property in the southern hemisphere.” Welcome to Pumphouse Point.
