The Tarkine

The 447,000 hectare Tarkine Wilderness Area is Australia’s largest tract of unprotected temperate rainforest and it contains vast forests of myrtle, leatherwood and pine trees.

You won’t find it named on many maps but the region is bound by the Arthur River to the north, the Pieman River to the south, the Murchison Highway to the east and the Southern Ocean.

It is home to one of the greatest concentrations of Aboriginal sites in Australia.
Almost all The Tarkine’s 447,000 hectares is alive with snakes, frogs, birds, 28 different mammals, endangered wedge-tailed eagles and the now rare Astacopsis gouldi – the world’s biggest freshwater lobster.
