That whole lake,the magic white sands on the shore, and the whole area are now under 20 metres or so of water.

We went there long after it was flooded.
I knew of it of course but was somewhat innocent and rented accommodation at Lake Pedder Chalet.
When we got there we drove into an asphalt quadrangle with a petrol bowser with a flat roof on top of it, with an industrial prefab building on three sides.
It would have housed several hundred people.
There was nothing for 50 miles in any direction.
My wife and I looked at each other.
Is this it?
I'm not getting out of the car.
Why not?
Because I'm embarrassed to be here.
All you have to do is go in the door and check in.
I'm embarrassed for the person behind the counter, pretending to work at a chalet.
Don't be silly.
Where's the whisky?

Well, we eventually made it in and it became apparent that this was the building which housed the workers who dammed Lake Pedder years before. It smelt of insecticide and had taps that spouted huge flows of water, unlike those ecological showers that are almost useless that you find everywhere else in Tasmania.
