The video shows some of our favourite footage from 2015/16. As we look forward to getting out on the Franklin River again on October 2. There are still a few places left on this 7 day full river tour and plenty of water on the West coast should ensure easy paddling.
Do you want to escape the winter blues? Looking for an adventure? Experience true wilderness in a unique way? We might have just the thing for you.
The Franklin River has a thousand faces and low water levels bring out some of its prettiest features. Even with lower than average water levels, rafting is still a relatively easy way to experience the remote beauty and wilderness of South West Tasmania.

From its headwaters in the alpine lakes of the Cheyne Range until its confluence with the Gordon River some 130 km later, the Franklin River flows through a wilderness national park. You will see no dams, buildings or cars; in fact there is no permanent human habitation in its catchment. The banks are lined by temperate rainforest punctuated by rock formations and small beaches, while the air is some of the cleanest in the world.
