Where is it? Far north-west Tasmania.

It’s the largest cool-temperate rainforest in Australia, albeit in our smallest state, and has the largest concentration of Aboriginal sites in the country. The Tarkine will encourage a more peaceful way of thinking as you experience its lush tranquility on a six-day hike through 44,700ha of forest untouched by bushfire for centuries. Tours led by Tarkine Trails will take you through spectacular mountain ranges, past wild rivers and below the tallest hardwood trees on the planet. On the last night of the walk, you’ll get to stay in gorgeous original timber miner’s cottages. Trust us, you’ll want to stay forever.
