River to Rainforest

Self-drive day package.

For fully escorted (driver and guide) group and trade enquiries, click here.


This great value, full day self-drive package, combines a visit to historic Franklin’s wooden boat-building centre with a stroll on the airwalk at Tahune. 

On this diverse and culturally-rich tour, you will follow the story of the famous Huon Pine, from river to rainforest and see how the forest, landscapes, culture, and farming have made the Huon Valley what it is today.

If you think visiting a boat building centre sounds boring, think again! This is a great place where you can watch people actually building wooden boats. ”
