Restoration

The present proposal to restore Lake Pedder is best understood by watching this 3D visualisation Lake Pedder—from inundation to restoration—developed in 2013.

The visualisation enables viewers to appreciate the process, the drama and the excitement of restoration of this unique landscape (duration: 7 minutes; ensure your sound is on as there is a voice-over).
