The Lake Pedder 1:50,000 Topographic Map covers the southern half of Lake Gordon and most of Lake Pedder, which are Tasmania’s largest artificial freshwater lakes and feed the hydro-electric Gordon Power Station.
Lake Pedder is accessible for trout fishing, kayaking and swimming. Most of the map area falls in Southwest National Park which is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Located in the west, the village of Strathgordon is set deep in the southwest wilderness on the shore of the lake. Mount Anne dominates the area and is the highest mountain in the southwest. The demanding high alpine circuit walk is for experienced walkers.
This is an ideal map for fishers, walkers and explorers of this part of the southwest wilderness.
