After leaving Gordon Dam we drove back along Gordon River Road to Scotts Peak Dam turnoff, about 53 km. We stopped at the Creepy Crawly Walk not far along the unsealed road.
Continuing along the road we passed Edgar Dam and Scotts Peak Dam at the eastern end of the lake.
Scotts Peak Dam was built to dam the Huon River. At 43 metres high it’s only a baby compared to the Gordon Dam. Edgar Dam is even smaller, 17 metres. There’s no public access to either of these dams walls.
Passing the two dams, the road takes you to Red Knoll Lookout.
We weren’t there at a great time of day to take photos and I probably would have got better results shooting RAW.
This is a place you’d want to spend an entire day, from sunrise to sunset, watching the light changing and photographing the different moods of the rocks and the mountains. And probably more than one day because of the fog in some places and the clouds over the mountains.
It’s not the sort of place to visit once and say you’d seen it.
