Julius River Rainforest Walk

Julius River Walks


Directions - Located just under an hours drive east of Arthur River on the Tarkine Drive, take Temma Road south until you reach Rebecca Road, then turn left. Head inland as Rebecca Road becomes Blackwater Road and take the right turn at Kununnah Bridge to keep going along Sumac Road. Drive for 9km until you see the signs for the Julius River Walks. There is a paved car park and information boards for the two walks in the area. 

The Hike - After a couple of weeks exploring the south and west of Tasmania, Arthur River and the Tarkine would be our final stop before driving back to Hobart for our return flight. With Arthur River located on the wild western coast of Tassie, it was nice to be on the coast for the last leg of the trip. With walking options limited to a couple of short trails centred around lookouts, I set my sights on the inland region known as the Tarkine. This collection of state reserves and patchy forests is under threat from logging, mining and every harmful process we love to do to the environment.
