Stay in the heart of Tasmania's South West
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.
