Lake Pedder, the largest fresh water lake in Australia is located approximately 150 kilometres west of Hobart and is set in Tasmania’s spectacular wild south-west wilderness. In addition to its natural catchment from the Frankland Range, the lake is formed by the 1972 damming of the Serpentine and Huon rivers by the Hydro Electric Commission of Tasmania for the purposes of hydroelectric power generation.

Recently the Pedder Wilderness Lodge has reopened under new management and central to the experience is the fantastic scenery around and on Lake Pedder. The very lucky and extremely talented Francois Fourie was lucky enough to attend the opening weekend. And while he was there, he was able to fly over lake Pedder and the adjacent Gordon Dam and South West Wilderness regions to capture some stunning aerial images which he has kindly provided us to share with you.

We hope you enjoy looking at these as much as we have. It is hard to believe just how beautiful this amazing part of Tasmania is. We will leave you alone here to take it all in.
