Left of the Field Caravan Park is where we stayed next after New Norfolk. The park is situated in a bush setting with large caravan sites with power, water, camp kitchen, shower, toilets and washing machine facilities. We have our kitchen, washing machine, shower and so on in our caravan.

After viewing Lake Pedder in March 2020 we headed around to the Gorden Dam in this remote area of in the South West of Tasmania. It was raining as one expects it to there. We last visited in 2014.
Lake Gordon has a surface area of 272 km2 (105 sq mi), with storage capacity of 12.5 km3 (3.0 cu mi) of water, the equivalent of twenty-five times the amount of water in Port Jackson. (Sydney Harbour).
Lake Pedder is connected to Lake Gordon through the McPartlans Pass Canal.
The scenery like below is all around you.
There are 196 steps down to side of the hill to be able to walk across the dam which is wider than it looks, we didn't do it this time due to rain, but don't think I could do it now I'm older.
Below is Seesaw Mountain, not listed on the maps of today. Taken on our way back to New Norkfolk.

The drive in March this year from New Norfolk where we were staying was a good one. We arrived at Lake Pedder in the south west of the Island about lunch time. No shops to buy anything, so I had packed a lunch. It rained along the way and had just stopped in time to take these photos from the viewing platform.
The photos are similar to each other yet different. A man standing next to us said the view reminded him of lakes in Scotland.
Lake Pedder was once a natural lake, located in the southwest of Tasmania, Australia but the name is now used in an official sense to refer to the much larger artificial impoundment and diversion lake formed when the original lake was expanded by damming in 1972 by the Hydro Electric Commission of Tasmania.
The new Lake Pedder has an area of about 242 km and it is considered to be the largest freshwater lake in Australia.

Back in March we went for another drive whilst staying at the caravan park.
Hops growing and taken with my phone. The last photo was another day and we were headed to the Gorden Dam in the South Western area of Tasmania..A few years ago there was a big bush fire in the bush and many hectares of trees were burnt.

After we visited the park on the same day in March this year we went for a bit of a drive up the road and came across the sign below, then further along the road the house which was once a church.
The Agrarian Kitchen Eatery is a Cooking School and farm, also caters for weddings. A link here .
Last photo is of a couple of Hop Kilns as you drive into New Norfolk, Tasmania.
