    Got to know about the Gordon Dam via posts on Instagram; we didn't feel like it was heavily spoke about in the "standard" tourist recommendations. It was a long drive into the Dam via the Gordon River...  more »

    Pretty close from Hobart. If you wake up early and drive there it's gonna take you 2,5 hours. At the end of trip you can find toilets. Make sure you bring some snacks for the way because there aren't shops on the way. Just an old petrol station in the middle of the way. Enjoy the view!

    So I went at 16:00 on a Monday in the winter and the place was totally empty except for me which was pretty nice. Amazing scenery up there and it's a really nice drive to get there.

    This place is amazing, creepy and sad at the same time. When you see the value of nature, and think about how the system of dams changed all the ecosystem around this region (and the whole island), places like the Gordon River can make you understand the power of man and bad/controversial decision making. The history of this place makes you value even more the Franklin River efforts and heritage.

    Mind blowing acrhitecture. Absailing from this dam is one of the craziest thing I have ever done. Its so amazing. The view is mesmerizing.
