Visited Lake Pedder for the first time in May 2022, great to finally visit this world heritage area and how beautiful it is, the drive in on the Gordon River Road was beautiful gently winding trip through closed in green forested areas and then opening out onto mountain vistas and lake views...very scenic. I booked online and what I thought was very nice in my email confirmation from The Lodge, was that they sent details of Covid regs and also a fantastic guide to walks and drives in the area that was a nice touch and really helpful...thumbs up !! The Wilderness Lodge is well presented with a nice open reception area that includes a small retail area and a very handy information display that tells you about the lake and the Gordon River dam development. Was a nice time to visit as Easter school holidays over but winter and possible road closures not an issue at that time. The Lodge was quiet but not dead !! All staff we met were great friendly, efficient and nice to talk to. The onsite restaurant and bar was great throughout the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner and some great meals and some great coffees were consumed. The restaurant looks out onto the lake and has great views, there is a wood burner you can sit near on those colder days and on warmer days there's a big deck with tables and chairs outside the restaurant. From the grounds around the lodge you can easily walk down to the edge of Lake Pedder, great for views and photos. The Lodge is just a short drive to lookout spots over the lake and of course on down to the Gordon River Dam itself. If you live in Hobort and surrounds I imagine this is a nice place to stay for a long weekend or a mid week break and if you're a tourist it's probably one to put on your bucket list to say you've been to the world heritage area and seen the dam. Given the distance for most other residents of Tasmania to drive I imagine it's a case of a one off trip for the experience and to also say you've seen the dam. As this trip was probably a one off visit for us we booked a Pedder Wing Lakeview room, the main room was a bit on the small size compared to other motels I've stayed in but it was neat clean and bright with everything we needed, the bathroom on the other hand was spacious and modern. We did indeed have a view of the lake but I think given that it's easy to access the lakeside from wherever you stay at the lodge it probably wasn't worth the extra expense. I assume the main room was probably a bit small as parts of if not all the accommodation was part of the original 1970's workers camp for the dam construction. Also at a busier time of year given that Lakeview rooms are the closest to the restaurant you may experience noise from people eating and drinking on the restaurant deck and kids running around playing so your tranquil view may get interrupted. Talking of interrupted tranquillity I have to say the noise transmission between rooms was awful, obviously I can't speak for all the room options but I wouldn't have a Pedder Wing Lakeview room again because of it. I don't think we had neighbours either side of us on our first night but on the second night we did. We could hear general movements and low level conversations on one side and from the other side every time the occupant got a phone call and used his 'outside voice' whilst inside on the phone we heard everything. It was above and beyond the sounds you may expect to transfer between rooms, really rather disappointing. Overall I would stay here again, it was great but definitely not in a Lakeview room.

We didn't manage to score a lake view but the room was still fine. Realistically the rooms are Atco huts. But there has been money and time spent to make them comfortable. They were clean, neat and comfy. Air con works well and the bed was very comfy. The bathroom is modern and the shower is great. The meals served at the restaurant were amazing. In such a remote location you would think the prices would be outrageous. Not so! Very tasty and well priced meals. A lovely location and very friendly staff.


nobody seems to know of this place. why?

we were really looking forward to going to lake pedder and enjoyed our stay at the lodge. the drive there is great and we can imagine the view changing all the time. we went at a very quiet time but can imagine how busy it would be in summer. we got a self contained unit and it was clean/spacious and had what we needed. the bed was comfortable and for us the floor heating was a plus. in the lodge restaurant and bar there is heaps of places to sit and just have a drink or play games. huge fireplace. we went for dinner there and the service was excellent and so was the food. but i do wish they had more info on what to do etc. you had to pay for a map. a free local map on where to explore would of been good. we got a key to the pool/gym area and the pool is suppose to be heated but it had a cover on, which we were disappointed. couldnt find the ping pong balls and bat to play. seems like the gym was the only place to use. also i did send a message and i think it was the manager through facebook and didnt end up getting back to me. if you are going to have a facebook page - reply. we told alot of people we were going there - people from tassie and at home and most people have no idea about the place. it is worth a visit.
