Take the good sealed road 150 km west from Mt Field National Park to reach the two hydro storages of Lake Gordon and Lake Pedder, set in wild Southwest wilderness and ringed with rugged mountain ranges. Both lakes are excellent wild trout fisheries and have good boat launching facilities. Check the weather forecasts before you go on the lake conditions change fast. Near Strathgordon is the visitor centre at the mighty Gordon Dam, site of Australias longest vertical abseil.
