If you find yourself nearing the North West coast of Tasmania, make sure you check out the Arthur River.
This river is also home to a small settlement, so will give you a true taste of how living really is in such a remote and wild area.
The true beauty of the area can only be seen from the river and a cruise operates down the Arthur River to explore the area's beauty. There are gorgeous rainforest trees as well as eucalypt trees stretching for the skies, you have a good chance of seeing some local wildlife and birdlife too, such as rosellas, orange-breasted parrots and wedge-tail eagles in pristine surroundings – their territory.
You can even hire a canoe and head out on your own paddling journey down the river.
Arthur River also acts as a bit of a gateway for other activities and areas, such as beach and forest trips. You can camp, and there are barbeque and picnic areas.
The weather in this area can be volatile, so no matter what activity you decide upon make sure you're well prepared with warm and rain-proof clothing. Then you can rest easy knowing no matter what, you're going to have a great time along the Arthur River.
