Experience Tasmania’s Tarkine Wilderness aboard the MV ‘George Robinson’ (the ‘red boat’) as she journeys 14 km up the Arthur River, a journey where you step back in time. This river is wild! It has never been farmed, logged, mined or dammed. The surrounding landscape is pristine and changes from coastal heath to wet sclerophyll rainforest and then cool temperate rainforest. See outcrops of pre-Cambrian metamorphic sandstone that are millions of years old. The cruise is relaxing and fun, with a friendly and attentive crew.
Watch the white-bellied sea eagles swoop for fish. Listen to the birds. You may be lucky and spot an azure kingfisher or perhaps a platypus, spotted quoll or pademelon.
Enjoy a barbecue lunch with wine amid giant ferns and ancient trees in the cool temperate rainforest. A guided walk informs you of the history of the area and its flora and fauna.
The Tarkine Wilderness is unique. Be among the few who venture to the rugged northwest coast of Tasmania and be captivated by this special place.
