Accommodation was good but the facilities need some TLC. If you want to do any fishing, boating or canoeing you must take all your own equipment. 1 night was enough to experience the amazing forest and Gordon dam. The high light was when we were leaving visiting the Styx Big trees....a must.

Jackie S, Thanks for visiting and taking the time to write a review. I am a bit surprised by the comment regarding fishing, canoeing and boating? Unless the date of your visit is incorrect and you were here more than 4 months ago we actually have 4 Kayaks and 2 Boats that we offer guests for a very reasonable fee...

Lake Pedder is 80 kms from any other form of civilisation and offers stunning scenery, great fishing opportunities and other great outdoors activities. It's remoteness comes at price. There is no mobile phone service, general store or other facilities. You can buy fuel but it's expensive. However, you have to remember where you are. I booked a room in the...

Hi Ric O, Thank you for staying at Pedder Wilderness Lodge and for taking the time to write a review. The lack of mobile coverage is sometimes a blessing.It allows us to decompress and sometimes even gives a great excuse to be unreachable. Having said that, I can relate to guests wanting to keep in touch and sometimes "technology withdrawals'....

We spent a night recently at the Pedder Wilderness Lodge in Strathgordon and it was great. Good clean quiet rooms, friendly staff, good base to explore the Strathgordon area, nice restaurant on site and affordable. Nice views of the lake, close to the dams which were good hikes. Nothing bad to say at all but wish we could have stayed...

This Lodge is located in a true Tasmanian wilderness area. Expect all sorts of weather. Exercise care when driving to this venue as you pass thru forests abounding with wildlife. The road is sealed, in good condition and quite bendy. The Lodge is positioned with fantastic views of Lake Pedder. The rooms and cottages are of a high standard, But...

Staying at Pedder Wilderness Lodge is simply a great experience, from the drive up the picturesque Derwent River Valley, through the Tasmanian Wilderness to the Lodge's fantastic location on the shore of Lake Pedder. The staff were one of the highlights. They really gave the impression that they wanted to be there. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was...

We wanted to spend some time in a central wilderness area...Strathgordon does that, and this is the only place to stay in Strathgordon. The room (Tim Shea) was basic...but adequate, clean & comfortable...we weren't going to spending a lot of time in a room...so no 'deal-breaker' there. The 'Lodge' is in a superb setting, overlooking the lake; and most breakfasts,...

Loved our visit here. The staff and the restaurant went out of their way to look after us from the minute we arrived. We caught 9 beautiful trout over a couple of days and the restaurant was kind enough to cook them up for us. The food was 5 star...stunning. Great live music with an open fire. The rooms are...

Fantastic drive from Hobart, so secluded, welcomed by the lovely staff. Our room had a great view of the lake. Loved the Jacks walk into the wilderness, at the back of the lodge, up and down hills over bridges. The huge fireplace looks out the moss lawn and lake, so relaxing!!

The Lodge accommodation is basic - our room was one of the single men's wing. But comfy bed and clean bathroom. There is a lounge, bar and dining area for guests to share with big fire blazing and wonderful outlook over the Pedder. The story behind the dam isn't hidden and perhaps one day the lake may be restored to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pedder Wilderness Lodge is located right in the heart of Tasmania's Southwest National Park which is part of Tasmania's World Heritage Area. Recognised as one of the world's extraordinary natural wonders by the World Heritage Commission, it is to be protected forever from human intervention. One tree, which now sits out the front of the Lodge, was cut down in the 1970's before this protection was in place. The great Huon pine, which is about the width of a car, has its rings marked all the way back to the birth of Christ. Our surrounds, from which this great Huon came, boast everything from ancient awe-inspiring landscapes with boulders from the Jurassic period, striking mountains and lush sub-alpine rainforests with monolithic trees which range from centuries to thousands of years old, all the way to the modern man-made Gordon Dam which offers one of the world's top ten adrenaline activities. With accommodation for all types of travellers, Pedder Wilderness Lodge offers a relaxing and warm environment with a focus on fine Tasmanian food, wines and produce. With sweeping views of Lake Pedder and Twelvetrees Range you could not find a more perfect place to escape, explore, relax and enjoy our hospitality. ... more   less
