Tasmania’s Tarkine Wilderness is one of Australia’s hidden gems – nearly 1 million acres of pristine rainforest, buttongrass plains and coastline home to 60 endangered species, including the iconic Tasmanian Devil. Pure water, pure air, pure forest and ocean, and some of Australia's most significant Aboriginal heritage. An absolute no-brainer for adventurers and tourists alike!
In January 2014 we spent a week running 140km across it in full gear? Joined by legend Costa Georgiadis and model Laura Wells, what we found there blew us away! It's undiscovered Australia at its best, and it needs all of us to help protect it.
Despite being the one of the world’s largest tracts of temperate rainforest with tremendous untapped eco-touristic potential, less than 5% of the Tarkine Wilderness is protected as National Parkland and is currently under threat from open-cut mining and logging proposals which would decimate the area.
Get in on the action and get down to the Tarkine! To learn more about how you can help protect it, visit www.tarkine.org or responsiblerunners.org.
Thanks to the amazing sponsors who helped make it a reality: Patagonia, BlackWolf, GoPro, Osprey, Salomon, Whitestar Travel, Tarkine Trails, Catfish Creative, Corinna Wilderness Lodge, 2XU, Pat Farmer, and Save the Tarkine for its ongoing efforts to protect this incomparable part of the world against short-sighted corporate interests that destroy it forever.
