Spring is just around the corner and holidaymakers everywhere are eyeing putting their winter woollies away to make way for their summer plans.
With this in mind, you might want to start organising the ideal weekend getaway for the warmer weather.
And one of the best places to unwind is the famous Gordon River, located on Tasmania's west coast.
In the 70s and 80s there was a movement to dam the river, however, these plans were overturned and in their place is the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. This area forms part of the Wilderness World Heritage Area, which is known for its rugged terrain and post-card perfect scenery.
From deep valleys to hurtling waterways and spectacular natural rapids, you will find something for everyone.
There are also loads of things for the whole family to do, including river cruises, comfortable day trips on the wilderness railway and small aeroplane flights to remember. (If you want to feel like a real adventurer, you won't want to miss out on the scenic flights deep into the Gordon River and Sir John Falls.)
