Lost underwater in Tasmania’s untamed west, an ancient forest stood long forgotten, until today. Discover more about Hydrowood’s unique story and what we can do for you.
Preserved deep underwater in Tasmania's forgotten wilderness
Thanks to an incredible vision, and even more incredible feats of modern engineering, we are undertaking one of Australia’s most ambitious forestry projects. We are creating history by delving deep below the waters of Lake Pieman to resurrect the precious timber below. This project has unlocked supplies of specialty timbers so scarce they were thought almost gone forever. Species such as Tasmanian Myrtle, Sassafras and even the legendary Huon Pine will once again be available in quantity.
This is real timber. Timber (re) discovered. Timber that master builders dream of working with, harvested in a way you wouldn’t believe and in quantities the world thought it would never see again.
See how our unique collaboration with one of Tasmania’s newest building projects created a Grand Designs Australia project that raised the bar.
