Many of the small creek beds around the town of Corinna in the Tarkine Region of Tasmania were pretty badly trashed by prospectors panning for gold in the 1880s. Those guys weren’t too concerned with natural beauty of the environment, they just wanted gold as fast as possible! That was over 100 years ago, and the forest has regenerated and recovered so you would hardly know humans had been there, until you find a place that was never trashed…
This is a secret spot revealed to Paul and I by an old local prospector in Corinna on the last Tasmania Photo tour back in March. It’s only 10 minutes off the track, but you would never know it was here if you weren’t looking…

The tiny gold rush town of Corinna is the best place to experience the Tarkine region of Tasmania, because Corinna is right in the middle of it. Corinna was a major centre of the Tasmanian Gold rush of the 1880s… historical reports say that Corinna was a completely lawless place, one of the most drunken violent towns in a very bleak and violent place. It would not have been a nice place to live if you didn’t like drinking and fighting!
Continuing on from the previous entry, Back from Tasmania Photo Tour Part 1…
From the historic town of Stanley, on the North West coast of Tasmania we headed South into the stunning wilderness of the Tarkine region on the Wild West Coast, with Arthur River as the base camp. The Roaring 40s smash into the West Coast of Tasmania without anything getting in the way to slow them down for thousands of kilometres, so it’s one of the wildest most untamed stretches of coastline in the world!
I got back from my Tasmania photo tour several weeks ago now, so this entry is long overdue. I managed to lock myself out of my own website for a while… That’s frustrating.
So I spent 10 days in March tramping around the Tarkine region in the North West corner of Tasmania with 6 participants and Paul Hoelen. We had wild winds, crazy rain, fog and the occasional bit of blue sky. It was awesome!
Last Saturday evening, March 10, at 11.45pm I finally completed the web-page for my Japan Photo Tour with Robert van Koesveld for November 2018, by 11.50pm I had 2 bookings. The next morning, I had another booking. Monday morning I had booking number 4, Tuesday morning booking 5,6 and 7, leaving just 3 places left.
By 3.30pm Tuesday all of those places were taken and I had 4 people on the waiting list… That’s a truly amazing response and it took both Robert and I completely by surprise. I am used to Bhutan and Iceland selling out fast, but fast is usually a couple of weeks, not 2.5 days… I didn’t even have time to send a newsletter…
