Lake Gordon is the name of a lake created by the Gordon Dam on the upper reaches of the Gordon River in central Tasmania. The lake was created in the early 1970s for hydroelectric power. It was one of the last, largest and most controversial hydro-electric power schemes in Tasmania.
Lake Gordon is connected with the (new) Lake Pedder which supplies additional water for the Gordon Dam power station.
Additional dams were proposed for the lower Gordon River, but were not proceeded with due to changing public opinion.
