Huon Pine Walk
Directions - Starting in the small hamlet of Corinna, located three and a half hours west of Launceston, there is only one unsealed road in and out. Once you're in Corinna then head towards the river from the Tarkine Hotel and to the car park on your right where you'll find an information board right before the track heads into the forest.
The Hike - With our time in Strahan at an end, we left the West Coast town and headed off to Queenstown for a railway experience before finally making our way towards the wilds of the Tarkine. It was a cold and wet drive along the Zeehan Highway where we stopped off at Zeehan for a warm drink and a look around the shops (great crystal and rock place for all you geology lovers). Reaching the unsealed Corinna Road, we were a little surprised at the width and quality of the road considering there aren't many options if you are wanting to drive to the north west corner of Tasmania from here. We eventually arrived at the river crossing to find Candy and Hal waiting for the cable operated ferry. It was funny seeing the bulk of Hal's Mercedes loaded up with kayaks get on the ferry and it made travelling across with our rental Qashqai a little less nerve-racking.
