    'The Tale of Lake Pedder'

    Are reasons of human emotion and sentiment a sufficient basis on which to argue for the restoration of Tasmania's long-lost Lake Pedder? In this essay, published in the Tasmanian Land Conservancy's exquisite anthology Breathing Space, Danielle debates this question with herself.

In the winter of 1972, Lake Pedder drowned. A jewel of Tasmania's southwest wilderness, the lake – along with its iconic pink sand beach – was inundated as part of a hydro-electric scheme. The fight to save the lake attracted worldwide attention and gave rise to the first green political party in the world. Danielle's current project, 'Pink Sand', is a novel-in-progress exploring the human history of Lake Pedder – a place that lives on in the hearts and minds of those who were fortunate enough to see it, and those who can only imagine its beauty.
