Tarkine Rainforest Walk
The Tarkine Rainforest Walk provides trekkers with exclusive access into the southern hemisphere's largest tract of cool temperate rainforest. Recognised globally for its ecological significance, the Tarkine rainforest provides a direct link to the ancient super continent of Gondwana. On easy to moderate day walks from Tiger Ridge basecamp, carrying only lightweight packs you will explore an ancient forest landscape dominated by towering Myrtle and Sassafras, discover secret waterfalls, glades of giant tree ferns, enticing waterholes and spectacular lookouts. A visit to the Tarkine's rainforests will transport you to a foreign world, one where a tapestry of rich greens is the backdrop. Best of all, there's no one else around.
