Strathgordon,located on the shore of Lake Pedder is a 2 hr 15-min drive (156 km) from Hobart. It is set well within the South West National Park and a short drive from the spectacular Gordon Dam that holds back the waters of Lake Gordon. Lake Pedder is Australia's largest fresh water lake and together with Lake Gordon form a significant part of Tasmania's hydro electric scheme.

Strathgordon was established to build the Gordon Dam and is almost at the end of Gordon River Road. The area offers water sports, particularly fishing and a range of walking and hiking experiences. Abseiling down the Gordon Dam wall is now available for the adventures.

Some maintenance staff for the hydro scheme remain at Strathgordon but a substantial part has been taken over by Pedder Wilderness Lodge which offers a range of accommodation options plus dining and other refreshment options and fuel.
