The Tarkine Drive

SOUTH ARTHUR FORESTS

 

A visit to the far North west would not be complete without a trip through the forest reserves in and around the South Arthur Forests - The Tarkine Drive.  From Smithton on the far North West there are two main options for continuing further.   The Bass Highway continues on through Dismal Swamp Blackwood reserve to Marrawah and the Mouth of the Arthur River.  The road south from Smithton heads towards the Arthur River at the Kanunnah Bridge.  20 kilometres from Smithton the road takes a left turn just past Roger River to Trowutta.  The road continues on in a 60 kilometre loop and returns to the main road at Kanunnah Bridge at the Arthur River.  There are some pleasant short walks along the way.

 

The forestry industry comes under close scrutiny as a result of it's "trash and cash" approach to forestry.  However, The South Arthur Forests are a fine example of the preservation of the natural environment blending in with timber harvesting.

 

 The Tayatea Bridge that was washed away in August 2007 has now been replaced. The ageing Rapid River bridge has also been replaced allowing the loop drive again. Beautiful short walks in the area.
