Tasmanian Wilderness

Covering almost 20% of the state, more than 1 million hectares, the Tasmanian Wilderness is one of the largest remaining temperate rainforests on the planet. Its significance for Australia is immense and the struggle to keep it pristine has become symbolic for an environmental movement in the country. It is a world of craggy peaks, deep gorges, fast-flowing rivers, ancient caves, endemic flora, rare and endangered fauna, and, in many areas, impenetrable forest. The world’s tallest trees – Swamp Gums of more than 100 m height – can be found here. Many endemic plant and animal species have their home in this grand wilderness and are well protected within. Many parts of the area are accessible for visitors and travelers and a great many activities can be undertaken: self-drive tours, hiking, canoeing, river-rafting, cycling are just a few. The area also encompasses some of Australia’s most favourite National Parks, such as Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair or the Walls of Jerusalem, Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers, Southwest and Hartz Mountains.
