Australia – Tasmania’s Pieman River

The Pieman River lies in the Tarkine, a huge area of unspoilt temperate rainforest, sand dunes and coastal heathland in the northwest of Tasmania. The Arcadia II, the world’s only Huon Pine boat, takes tourists down from the settlement of Corinna to the mouth of the river at Hardwike Bay. Here the force of the vast southern ocean can be appreciated from the huge amount of driftwood on the shore.
