Several lakes and inlets can be observed in this image of southwestern Tasmania, Australia. The largest inlet is Macquarie Harbour, in the upper left quadrant. To the southeast are the inlets of Port Davey (left), adjacent to Bathurst Harbour (right).

Further inland, the largest bodies of water are Lake Gordon (above) and Lake Pedder (below). The former is a reservoir created by the Gordon Dam on the upper reaches of the Gordon River in south-west Tasmania, Australia. Lake Pedder is connected to Lake Gordon through the McPartlans Pass Canal.
