A few ‘arty’ shots from our last trip down the Franklin River, a typical February 10-day expedition with very little rain, low river levels and plenty of sunshine.
Wilderness and Adrenalin on the Franklin river. Well that’s in the top 10 things of my life I have done and unlikely to get kicked out. Five stars
Some highlights (best-of video and images) of our first trip of the season, 7-Day Full Franklin River, Oct 5-11 2014.
Watch an ECHIDNA or SPINY ANT EATER, a MONTREME and close relative of the PLATYPUS, crossing INTERLUDE CREEK at Rafters Basin. Spotted on a FRANKLIN RIVER RAFTING ™ TOUR with WATER BY NATURE 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.
