Corinna - Mt Donaldson

The Tarkine

 

 
 

 

About 6 kilometres from Corinna the Western Explorer Road crosses the Savage River. Just across the bridge on the left is the start of the track to Mt Donaldson. We will get back here to climb the mountain.

 

About 10 kilometres further north on the Western Explorer is a short track to a lookout - the Longback.  If you do one walk in the area then this one is recommended.  Views include Mt Donaldson shown above, Savage River mine shown below and a distant view to the Pieman Heads - see panorama below.  A great short walk of about 30 minutes return.  All the images show the aftermath of a severe bushfire in March 2008.  Authorities came under criticism for not clearing the road for over 6 months after the fire.  On driving through the area in December 2009 it is clear there must have been hundreds of trees littering the road after the fire.
