Tasmania’s rainy West means lush rainforest and an abundance of streams and rivers that wind their way through Franklin – Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Franklin River Nature Trail is a lovely short walk that takes you through the mossy rainforest down to a beautiful section of Tasmania’s Franklin River, the centre of a nationwide environmental controversy in the early 1980’s.
Franklin – Gordon Wild Rivers National Park World Heritage Area is the essence of true wilderness. Apart from a few short walks, most of the park is remote and inaccessible. Frenchman’s Cap, a dramatic white quartzite peak with its 450m (1480′) vertical cliff, is the most well-known feature of Franklin – Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.
