  • 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!
  • Very long way to the bottom of the wall. Controversial when built but spectacular none the less.
  • 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.
  • Very impressive to see, it's free, and there are some signs with information. You can also walk over the dam.
  • ugly piece of concrete that should never have been built. massively ruins the landscape.
