A guided 3 day Pack Free walk

There are few places left that can be truly described as wild and untouched, but the remote Tarkine is one of these places. This vast 447,000 hectare wilderness area is reknowned for its remote waterfalls, stunning myrtle rainforests, pristine rivers, dramatic mountain tops and wild coastline. The Tarkine is one of Tasmania’s greatest treasures.
