Guide to Tasmania's wild west coast
White-water raft untamed rivers, sail beautiful harbours and hike through age-old rainforest on Tasmania’s wild west coast.
Home to untamed rivers, ancient pine trees and giant sand dunes, the west coast is at the heart of Tasmania's wilderness. Challenge the infamous Franklin River on a white-water rafting expedition, cruise down the majestic Gordon River and hike past 1,000-year-old Huon pines in one of the world's last temperate rainforests for a true taste of this rugged corner of Australia.
