Stop over at Corinna in Tasmania’s North West

Shared by |tags, , , , ,

Corinna is a small town in the north-west of Tasmania renowned for its rich mining history and extremely picturesque setting.

Set among rainforest on the banks of the beautiful Pieman River this idyllic location is well worth a visit on your tour of the island state.

The town sits at the southern end of the Tarkine protected area – Australia's largest temperate rainforest and a place to see breathtaking Huon Pine.

For a glimpse back to the ancient continent of Gondwana you can hike into the breathtaking rainforest prevalent in this region.

Corinna's inhabitants are proud of the area's pristine wilderness and work hard to sustain it so that visitors can continue to enjoy delightful walks along iconic routes such as the riverside Huon Pine Walk or the more challenging Savage River Walk.

For those who prefer to take in the views from the comfort of a boat, why not relax for the day on the Pieman River Cruise?

Upon your return you can enjoy the comforts of fine accommodation in one of the wilderness retreats or backpacker hostels.

Corinna is also famous for being home to the largest gold nugget ever found in Tasmania.
