White Water Rafting in Tasmania Australia

White Water Rafting Tasmania

The Franklin River in south-west Tasmania is one of the state’s most famous rivers, for its heart-stopping beauty, controversial history, and the epic rafting that it provides.

A trip down the Franklin River is an 83 km journey that (in rafts) usually takes about 10 days (rest days included). The river features all grades of rapids and winds its way through Tasmania’s ancient wilderness, a place so significant for Australians that it was saved from damming by a 1983 High Court decision and is now protected by World Heritage status.
