ACTIVITIES

Corinna provides an unforgettable wild edge experience that is difficult to find in Tasmania and elsewhere in the world. A range of kayaking, walking, boating, fishing, bird watching and nature experiences are available to guests staying in the ensuited, eco- friendly retreats. The hospitality and quality of the food and beverages in the Tarkine Hotel and Tannin Restaurant add another dimension to a Corinna visit. Opportunities also abound to explore and recall the exploits of the early miners and the aboriginal communities who made the west coast home as many as 30,000 years ago.

THE ENVIRONMENT

From CORINNA:

“Corinna is an authentic eco-tourism destination where the owners have restored and developed the assets with sensitivity. Use of solar power, rain water, eco certified products, commitment to off-site waste removal and recycling, chemical free sewage treatment and non plastic packaging, combine to minimize the human footprint at Corinna. The township is powered by an eco-friendly solar system with back-up generators. Corinna has pure rainwater (probably the most pure water in the world) and all waste is removed from site.

We understand that there is still a way to go and collectively strive to learn from, understand, and protect the unique environment of which we are privileged to be a part.

Corinna Wilderness Experience does not sell pre packaged commercial bottled drinking water in plastic or PET bottles. Instead, guests can use the specially available Corinna water bottles to fill them with the most pure rainwater in the world. We are currently the subject of a case study by the Bottled Water Alliance. “

The town of Corinna sits on the edge of Tasmania’s wild west coast.  The only surviving historical mining settlement in Australia, Corinna today is a budding eco-tourism destination that offers forest walks, river cruises, kayaking, fishing, and sublime photographic opportunities.

Corinna is an historic mining town, set in pristine rainforest on the banks of the majestic Pieman River in western Tasmania. Your hosts at Corinna, Brendan and Fiona Hirst, provide a warm welcome and guidance towards a range of unique wilderness experiences, including cruises on the Pieman River in the legendary huon pine vessel, Arcadia II.

The general store, old guest house and original buildings bring alive the history of Corinna Wilderness Experience,which is a starting point to connect with the surrounding wilderness in all of its facets. Corinna is accessible by normal 2WD motor vehicles, with the town reached from the south by crossing the Pieman River on the legendary “Fatman” barge. The Tarkine Hotel and Tannin Restaurant have become a focal point of life for the Corinna community. Lunch and dinners are available at the Tannin Restaurant, which uses local produce as much as possible.
