Best Walks in the Tarkine & North West Tasmania

Tasmania’s north west is home to the Tarkine (the second largest stretch of temperate rainforest in the world) and the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, both of which are inhabited by remnant Gondwana flora, unique wildlife and precious ecosystems. There is a network of well-maintained Tarkine wilderness walks with easily accessible viewpoints, numerous picnic spots, and plenty of chances for photography. Or headed south, Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park offers a perfect option for a Tassie hiking trip. This extensive region encompasses seven of the state’s top ten highest mountains, with various hiking trails extending from the visitor areas. With week-long journeys or short Tarkine rainforest walks available, there’s a suitable choice for everyone to experience the park’s natural wonders.
