Corinna is a remote historic mining town set in rainforest on the banks of the majestic Pieman River. Situated at the southern end of the magnificent Tarkine Forest Reserve, it’s the perfect place to experience the isolation of Tasmania’s West. The old-growth rainforest here is a direct link with the ancient supercontinent of Gondwana.
There are good walks in the area, most offering spectacular views of the wilderness. If you prefer, you can take a river cruise through breathtaking rainforest up the Pieman on an historic riverboat, the only Huon pine river cruiser in the world – or kayak instead. Either way, the river’s reflection will amaze you, not to mention the evocative atmosphere of this beautiful wilderness region.
Accommodation is in one of several restored miners’ cottages or the recently built Tarkine Hotel.
There’s also backpacking accommodation and campsites.
Corinna is around a 2-hr drive (131 km) south-west from Burnie.
