Brad supplied these pictures without giving details of the locations.  The Franklin River rafting expedition can start in a few locations.  One is where the Collingwood River crosses the Lyell Highway between Lake St Clair and Queenstown.  From here the river winds it's way around the base of Frenchman's Cap and on to the Gordon River.  Another is at Mt McCall which can be accessed through Queenstown along the Mt Jukes road.  From here the 'voyage' around Frenchman's Cap is missed.

 

In 1982 the Franklin River was earmarked for destruction by a proposed hydro electric scheme.  The project was halted by the federal government of the day.
