Back from Tasmania photo tour Part 2

May 13th, 2018

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!

Arthur River.

Our house in Arthur River is right at the mouth of the river with floor to ceiling windows right across the front, so it’s a great place to come home to after a day spent wandering in the wilderness.  A great place to watch the weather and the huge waves roll in, with a hot cup of tea in hand while warming the back of the legs in front of the fire.  Not only great views, fireplace and hot cups of tea, but we also had our very own chef  for the duration of our time in Arthur River who produced a continuous stream of brilliant food.

The Tarkine region of Tasmania is home to the biggest region of unprotected temperate rainforest in the world, unprotected as in it’s not part of a National Park and the very redneck Tasmanian Government is keen to chop it all down and turn it into toilet paper.  The more of us that get in there to see it, and then tell all our friends about it, show them images of what we are losing the better!

Further South from Arthur River is the tiny town of Corinna, that is the best place to really experience the incredible Tarkine wilderness.  That will be coming in the next instalment…
