At the southern end of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is a pristine lake that’s the deepest in Australia. There’s a 250-metre pier that juts out over the water and Pumphouse sits proudly at the end. The 18-room adults-only hotel is the definition of industrial-chic: it’s imposing on the outside, yet cosy and luxurious inside, with floor-to-ceiling windows to soak up the incredible lake views.

Ship Inn Stanley
On the north-west coast of Tasmania, Ship Inn Stanley is a sophisticated stay with a storytelling style. Sitting at the base of The Nut Reserve and overlooking a dramatic coastline, Ship Inn is one of Stanley’s most iconic buildings that has been given a lavish makeover. Each suite tells the story of a local character or place, using historical artefacts, original artwork, bespoke furnishings resulting in a vintage meets modern vibe.
From $250 per night
16 Alexander Terrace, Stanley
Just footsteps away from the water, Captains Rest’s secluded cabin awaits. A four-hour drive from Hobart on the West Coast of Tasmania, Captain’s Rest is set within the sleepy fishing village of Strahan (the scenic route is a journey of its own) and is treasured for its fanciful surrounds. This adults-only retreat with ocean view Georgian windows and stylish, eclectic décor, tells a thousand stories.
