Lake Pedder and The Valley of the Giants

Lake Peddar in the South West of Tasmania is a stunning sight. It is now dammed to provide hydro electricity. During the early 1970's there was a battle to save the lake from being flooded. Below is a picture of what is used to look like. As beautiful as it originally was, the dammed version is stunning as well. Above is just a fifth of the beautiful panorama.

Into the Styx forest to the land of the giants (trees). Magnificent is all I can say.

The Styx River

There will be more from the Styx Valley coming up soon as it was so beautiful we made another trip back.
