Franklin River Nature Trail

Point of Interest


Lyell Highway, Tasmania.


25 minutes return, 1km. This short and easy walk, the perfect rest stop when travelling between east and west, has a big story to tell. A part-boardwalk track takes you through beautiful mossy rainforest. In late summer you may catch the superbly fragrant scent of leatherwood flowers. The climax of the short loop track is when you come to the banks of the Franklin River. This wild river was once famous for the controversial dam that would have drowned much of its course. It was saved, and is now a tranquil place to take in the beauty of the wild. Dogs are not permitted. No camping or overnight parking allowed. Toilets closed.
