Take a sneak peek at Tasmania's newest luxury retreat

Pumphouse Point is one of the most spectacular resorts in Tasmania, best known for its luxury suites over the water at Lake St Clair. 

Originally constructed in 1940 to pump water for hydro-electricity, this iconic post-industrial site has been refurbished to offer boutique accommodation inside Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area. 
This intimate property offers just 18 rooms; located in the Pumphouse building out on the lake and also in the Shorehouse building on the water’s edge.


Just before Christmas, Pumphouse Point owner Simon Currant and his team are launching new one-off luxury accommodation to be known as The Retreat.

The Retreat is billed as offering the highest-standard accommodation at Pumphouse Point - pricing starts from $1275 per night - and it is hidden away on the edge of the lake, surrounded by native bush.


The Retreat is an unashamedly luxury experience – inclusive of all food including dinners (served privately in The Retreat, or at shared tables in the Shorehouse dining room), an expanded larder brimming with the best local produce, wines and Tasmanian craft beers, ciders and spirits. 

Designed to showcase the lake’s natural beauty and unpredictability, The Retreat features locally crafted furniture, ceramics, bath products and two deep tubs for soaking (one under the stars). 

Guests can be as private as they wish, while having the opportunity to enjoy all on-site attraction, including rowing, trout fishing, mountain biking and hiking bush trails. 
The Retreat officially opens on December 15. For bookings contact
