Rock Of The Tarkine

Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area, Tasmania, Australia

When you meet the rugged, wind swept Tarkine coastline you begin to appreciate the beauty and power of a relatively untouched landscape. The Tarkine coastline is not only breathtaking, but the expansive ocean beaches and huge surf create a powerful backdrop for the Tarkine rainforest which borders the coast.

The Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area stretches along the spectacularly wild north-west coast of Tasmania, covering over 100,000 hectares. The Arthur-Pieman is the coastal portion of a much larger region extending inland, known as The Tarkine. This is a powerful place of great significance: a big, open land, shaped and nurtured by the hands of thousands of generations of Aboriginal families, with a coastline sculpted by the enormous swells of the Southern Ocean.
