The picture above is the vehicle ferry which crosses the river at Corinna providing access to Zeehan, Strahan, Queenstown and beyond.  The ferry is capable of accommodating caravans.  Corinna is on the northern bank of the Pieman and can be accessed from Burnie and Cradle Mountain through Waratah and Savage River.   The relatively new Western Explorer road from Smithton and Marrawah also provides access to the area.  The road as far as Savage River township is a very good but winding sealed road.  From Savage River the road is unsealed but quite good.  The Western Explorer is unsealed and narrow in parts. Caravans can negotiate the road but it's condition can deteriorate after rough weather. It is always wise to check with Parks and Wildlife before driving the road.  The road from Zeehan and Tullah is particularly good to just near the Reece Dam.  A short narrow gravel road wanders down to the ferry crossing at Corinna on the southern side of the river.

 

In September the Tarkine Hotel opened it's doors.  It includes a restaurant, provisions shop and a bar.  The hotel also has 4 star luxury cabin accommodation available.  The operators of the hotel along with Parks and Wildlife have created numerous short and longer walks in the area.  With no phones, TV or internet the area has a strong feel of remoteness.  An excellent remote oasis for a very peaceful escape - the heart of The Tarkine.  One of the main attraction here is the ferry ride to the Pieman Heads.  A true wilderness experience.

 

The rainforests are particularly good to visit in winter.  The greens of the forest glow in the often even light.  The Pieman Heads and the West Coast are particularly spectacular in rough weather.  The river at the Pieman Heads is protected from the weather allowing access by ferry most of the year.
