Tasmanian Wilderness - Tasmania

There are not many places on earth as beautiful, wild and untouched as the world heritage listed - Tasmanian Wilderness region of south western Tasmania.

With an abundance of wildlife, magnificent mountains, rivers, glacial lakes and waterfalls, rainforest and sacred aboriginal sites dating back over 30,000 years, the Tasmanian Wilderness area is unique.

It has some of the best preserved Ice Age aboriginal sites, with rock art and midden sites. There is no shortage of adventure for enthusiasts , with white water rafting, climbing and long overnight treks that can last up to 10 days, on a network of walking trails, that are suitable for a range of experienced walkers.

The western region of Tasmania is one of the most rugged and spectacular areas in Australia, much of which is included in Tasmania's acclaimed World Heritage area. If you enjoy bushwalking, the west coast and the mountains offer some of the most rewarding trails in the country.

Try the 85km track from Lake St Clair to Cradle Valley or for the accomplished bushwalker the stunning 150km coastal track in the South-West National Park. Other attractions include exhilarating white water rafting and some of the best trout fishing in the World.

If you have an interest in the great outdoors, and enjoy a holiday of adventures, come visit this magnificent wilderness of Tasmania.
