As you enter Corinna via the silica road from Waratah, you seem to enter another time. All the cottages are built to reflect the historical period at the height of the timber getting industry. Some of the cottages are originals. The only hotel is built in the same , simple style and offers a restaurant for those who choose not to self cater.
Our cottage ( #1 ) was in a quiet position, away from the barbecue shed. It had a modern, comfortable interior minus the trappings of modern society - TV, phone,radio.This leaves the guest time to breathe in the Tarkine. We sat on the verandah at night, sipped our wine and took in the aromas of campers' bush fires and the sound of rain on the trees surrounding us.There are easy, well marked walking tracks through the astounding Tarkine.This is an experience not to be missed,
The river cruise on the Arcadia II is well worth it. Dale, the assistant, will cater for your every need and answer all questions to do with the environment. He may even take you fishing during lunch at the heads. He caught 2 fish on our cruise and kindheartedly donated them to guests for their dinner.We enjoyed this cruise more than the Gordon river cruise ex Stahan for its more intimate nature and friendly hospitality.
It is recommended that you take your own provisions if self catering. The restaurant serves good meals with a limited menu. Solar power and fresh water tanks are attached to each cabin.Have $20 cash for the Fatman Barge if you are crossing the river.
It rained during our stay ( you are ,after all, in a rainforest ) but that did not stop us from walking and actually added to the true beauty of the Tarkine.A must do while in Tassie!
