Pumphouse Point is an iconic Australian destination hotel, sensitively set on the edge of Lake St Clair in the World-Heritage listed Tasmanian wilderness. The boutique retreat comprises two lovingly restored heritage-listed industrial buildings, the Pumphouse and Shorehouse, which had a former life as part of a 1930’s water pumping facility supporting Tasmania's hydro-electricity scheme. The Pumphouse is positioned at the end of a jetty over the water, allowing guests to gaze out the window to the lake below. Both buildings feature several lounge areas and fireplaces, inviting guests to relax with a coffee or glass of red and take in the stunning lake views. There is a well-stocked guest honour bar so you can pour your favourite Tasmanian wine, whisky or gin, and each guest room has a private Larder stocked with local cheese, charcuterie and salmon which you can enjoy with the freshly-baked sourdough bread that is delivered on demand. Three course farmhouse dinners are enjoyed in the Shorehouse and are an opportunity for guests to meet and share stories of the day’s adventures in this World-Heritage Listed wilderness area.
