TARKINE WILDERNESS WALK
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. The Tarkine’s size, naturalness and habitat diversity make it an outstanding refuge for native mammals such as the Tasmanian Devil as well as more than 130 different species of birds. It is home to more than 60 rare, threatened and endangered species and is Australia’s largest tract of temperate rainforest.
Carrying just a day pack, enjoy three days of guided walking in the stunning Tarkine, discovering its wild and varied landscapes including the rainforests, mountains and wild coast.
