Wild, remote and every bit as epic as it looks in the pictures, Pumphouse Point on Tasmania’s Lake St Clair is a ‘must-visit’ Apple Isle destination.
Originally a hydroelectricity station built in the 1930s, this hotel conversion has made the most of is dramatic location to create a boutique hotel in the World Heritage listed Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.
The hotel is split over two locations, The Pumphouse, perched in the middle of the lake and the Shorehouse, on the slopes of the lake’s shoreline. Rooms in both are beautifully designed and fitted out with a ‘cosy- industrial’ style that wouldn’t be out of place in a city hotel.
Getting away from it all has never been so stylish.
