Strathgordon is a small town in Tasmania, on Scotts Peak Dam Road, Gordon River Road Tasmania being the most south westerly road in the south west of Tasmania. It is remote with limited local facilitates and no mobile phone coverage. The nearest basic services are some 60 kilometres away in Maydena. The road to Strathgordon is maintained in good condition by Hydro Tasmania and offers spectacular views of the South Western Wilderness. It is important to note that during Winter snowfalls are common, and it is imperative to take care when driving on roads covered in snow, rain and ice. The town was used as the base for construction by Hydro Tasmania of the hydro-electric structures that resulted in damming of Lake Pedder and Lake Gordon. This part of Tasmania is a popular tourist destination for bushwalkers and visitors to Tasmania wishing to visit the Southwest National Park. Lake Pedder lodge reopened in 2012 and provides a range of accommodation options for travellers wishing to explore the area.
