A land shaped by ancient melting glaciers, Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park is a must visit for the nature enthusiast. Take the time to admire the towering Huon pines, the winding rivers, the lush rainforests, the stunning mountains and the dramatic valleys. Here is a place where you can be lost in nature.
Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park also has a rich history and is dotted with several aboriginal as well as convict sites. In 1982 the park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage listing, thereby helping preserve one of Tasmania’s last remaining wild rivers.
On a trail through the park, you will be treated to the sights and sounds of the most spectacular bird life. Keep a look out for the short-tailed shearwater, white-bellied sea eagle, the striking Tasmanian Azure Kingfisher and the adorable pink robin. The park’s temperate wilderness provides an ideal habitat for varied vegetation and birdlife.
