Set in the pristine Tarkine rainforest on the banks of the majestic Pieman River, Corinna was once a thriving gold mining town. Now established as an eco-tourism destination, Corinna offers the ultimate wilderness experience with old-growth rainforest walks, river cruises, kayaking, fishing and bird watching.
Nicknamed the tiny ‘settlement’, Corinna provides a range of accommodation options including self-contained retreats, restored historic miners’ cottages, backpackers or campsites and the local hotel.
Stunning nature based experiences await with a number of walks offering breathtaking wilderness views including the Huon Pine Walk, the Savage River Walk, the Whyte River Walk and Mount Donaldson. Opportunities are also available to explore the rich history of the early minors and the Aboriginal communities who made the west coast home as many as 30,000 years ago.
Cruise the reflective Pieman River on the only Huon-pine-built river cruiser still operating in the world. Truly one of the iconic treats in Tasmania, the journey from Corinna to Pieman Heads takes in waterfalls, platypuses, sea eagles, rainforest and the SS Croydon shipwreck.
Corinna is accessible by normal 2WD motor vehicles and if you’re travelling from the south, you’ll get to experience the legendary “Fatman” barge as you cross the Pieman River.
