WHAT IS PUMPHOUSE POINT?
Pumphouse Point is a historic industrial site, restored to offer boutique accommodation inside Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area. It does not aspire to offer luxury, exclusive only by way of its size, location and unique Tasmanian experience.
The property is set against some of the most dramatic natural landscape on the planet, but the setting is really only the very beginning. Instead, the opportunity to reflect, rejuvenate, explore, adventure, and interact is what makes the Pumphouse experience so special – a unique personal encounter for all who come to stay.
The Pumphouse Point site has been developed by SIMON CURRANT, the realisation of his 18-year vision for the property. The site was leased to two developers prior to Mr Currant, but both failed to commence work within the timeframes set out in the lease terms. Mr Currant has worked hard to obtain all required approvals and support in finally bringing this incredible site back to life. After In October 2022, Pumphouse Point joined the incredible portfolio of iconic Tasmanian properties operated by NRMA Expeditions.
The design, developed by architecture firm CUMULUS STUDIO, is driven by the industrial heritage of the buildings. With very few changes made to the exterior, the buildings still stand in all their weathered glory as they have for over 70 years. The interiors have been designed for simple excellence and comfort, again with no apology for the buildings’ origins as a pumphouse.
As a much-loved relic of Tasmania’s industrial heritage, there is a responsibility to maintain that heritage for future generations. There is also consideration of the environmental stewardship imparted by the lease of the site in keeping with World Heritage Area values of minimal impact and sustainability.

FOOD & BEVERAGE
The nightly rate is all-inclusive of breakfast, lunch and dinner. We’ve carefully designed a menu that’s integral to the Pumphouse Point experience; simple, wholesome, local, and that complements our surroundings.
Breakfast and set-menu dinners are communal-style, served daily in the shorehouse dining room, and an in-room larder is stocked with artisan cheeses, charcuterie, olives and snacks that are perfect for a picnic in the wilderness for lunches, or an indulgent platter by the fire. We deliver hot sourdough throughout the day to accompany these goodies.
On Saturday nights, a roaring fire is lit in our alfresco area in preparation for the Fire Feast. Local meats are seared over flames on two enormous outside Asado grills, with antipasti, chargrilled vegetables, puddings and indulgent extras. This is included for weekend guests.
Beverages are charged through a ledger system on consumption at our three honesty bars – open 24/7, but guests are their own bartenders.
Guests may explore the outdoors with walks, e-bikes, rowboats, fishing, wildlife viewing, scenic helicopter/plane flights and picnics. Although, relaxing on the couch with panoramic views of Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area may be all the perfect experience, without even venturing outdoors!
