Lake Pedder: The Journey to Restoration

An exhibition, auction and dialogue.


Lake Pedder Auction

Sunday Sun 3 Nov, 2 to 4pm 

Thank you to everyone that attended the exhibition and events and purchased the rare and valuable pieces inspired by the beauty of the original Lake Pedder. The auction helped us raise over $20,000. 100% of the funds raised will go into the effort to restore Lake Pedder.

“Is there any reason why Tasmania should not be more beautiful on the day we leave it, than on the day we came?
If we can revise some of our attitudes towards the land under our feet – if we can accept the role of a steward, and depart from the role of the conqueror; if we can accept the view that man and nature are inseparable parts of the unified whole
– then a Tasmania that is truly beautiful can be a shining beacon in a dull, uniform and largely artificial world.” 

Olegas Truchanas, 1923 to 1972
