On a recent trip to Tasmania – my first – I had the chance to visit the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.
I’ve wanted to visit this area for years. Fuelled by an early passion for the environment driven by the Franklin Dam controversy, combined with my later discovery of the amazing photographic works of Peter Dombrovskis and my own obsession with photography, Tassie has stayed right on the bucket list. So…plenty of reasons.
This World Heritage area is stunning. From cloud-shrouded mountains to deep green rainforest gullies, it’s a true delight. I was travelling alone and whilst I stopped at many places, the status of the Park means access is carefully managed and opportunities for day-trippers are limited. Next time I’m in for overnight hiking and camping. And there will definitely be a next time.
