Moderately Priced Couples Families With Children Mature Travellers Adventure Off The Beaten Path Relaxation

Corinna, on Tasmania's west coast and surrounded by temperate rainforest is a former mining town and was first settled in 1881 during the heady gold rush days of the west coast. Boasting a population of 2500 in its heyday Corinna is now a small settlement nestled in the rainforest on the banks of the Pieman River.

Corinna Wilderness Experience offer a chance to escape the mass tourism and enter the enchanted world of the Tarkine, Australia's largest tract of temperate rainforest and home to an array of unique fauna and flora. TheTarkine has been rated no 1 in CNN's top 10 of the world's last great wilderness areas.

Activities include:

 

River cruises

Arcadia II. Cruise the Pieman River aboard the Arcadia II. The Arcadia was built in 1939 from Huon pine as a luxury pleasure craft and after a varied service life, including wartime duties, started cruising the Pieman River in 1970 and is the only huon pine river cruiser still operating anywhere in the world. The Arcadia II cruises between Corinna and the Pieman Heads on the coast and departs at 10 am and returns to Corinna by 2.30 pm. This well regarded cruise unveils the history and wonder of the west coast of Tasmania with its mining past and unique ecosystems.

Sweetwater. The cruise on the smaller Sweetwater enables ventures into some of the smaller tributaries of the Pieman River, such as the Savage and Donaldson rivers. The cruise is 2.5 hours long (max 8 passengers) and takes in such sights as Lovers Falls, Sea Eagles Nest and Hell's Gates with the option of walking back to Corinna via the Savage River walk.

Kayaking

Corinna Wilderness Experience offer kayaks for half or full day hire so you can explore the beauty of the Pieman River.

Walks.

Walking tracks abound in and around Corinna from the 20 min Huon Pine walk to the 4 to 5 hour trek to the top of Mount Donaldson. A wonderful way to explore the rainforest and perhaps spot some of the native fauna, including quolls, Tasmanian devils, platypus, wombats and wallabies.

Accommodation

Corinna Wilderness Experience has a number of accommodation options available including family accommodation in the old butcher's shop, the original roadman's cottage with double bed, fourteen new wilderness retreats built to the original style, but with modern amenities including ensuites and the old pub which is like a guest house (with single and double rooms).
