Lake Dora is a 48-hectare (120-acre) lake and also short-lived mining area of the late 1890s located in the West Coast Range of Western Tasmania, Australia. It has a surface level of 756 metres (2,480 ft) AHD .

Features and location

It has two adjacent tarns just west of it, Maxfield and Michael Tarns, and numerous unnamed smaller lakes and water features.[2]

The nearest named features are Walford Peak at 1,009 metres (3,310 ft), approximately one kilometre (zero point six two miles) to the north west; and Farquhar Lookout at 935 metres (3,068 ft), located 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) to the south west. It is 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) north north west of Eldon Peak

Located east of the Mount Tyndall area, it was the site of a transient gold-mining rush in the late 1890s. Lake Dora is not generally accessible by road, but only via trails or by helicopter. Lake Dora lies north of Lake Spicer – into which it drains.

Charles Whitham wrote of the mining rush:[3][4] Lake Dora, Royal Dora, Lady Dora, North Dora, and, of course Dora Reward. The Government put in a good track from Mount Read, with a telephone line (1897).
