When it comes to Bucket List adventures, the Franklin River Rafting has to be easily in the top 5 world adventures to experience.
Rafting for 8 wild days down this completely untouched and wild river is an experience that you will never forget. For 8 days we let the river take us, inhaling all of its incredible natural beauty it has to offer. And trust me... there is so much!
I have been lucky to experience this trip twice in my lifetime and to this day remains the single greatest adventure of my life. And it is with this experience and amazing memories that I wanted to offer this up to everyone... with a twist of photography thrown in.
The Franklin River has been the centre of Australia wide publicity since the late 1970' and early 80's as the river was scheduled to be dammed. An action that was widely opposed, protested and rallied against. The Franklin River was saved in May 1983 after the High Court decided the dam would not be going ahead. From this day onwards it has been and will continue to be a natural treasure of Australia and indeed the World, one that everyone should experience.
As we meander along the mighty river we will photograph sites only this river can offer you.
Giant ravines, amazing wildlife, untouched rainforests including the Huon Pine tree, brilliant colours of the river and rocks, ever changing geology and flora as we head down the river, and so much more. It really has so much to offer to any photographer wanting to capture unique and untouched beauty.
Capture photographs that so many will never get the privilege to capture themselves.
Some of our main location we will shoot are;
The Great Ravine
The Lower Franklin and The Lost World (Limestone Caves)
Huon Pine and other Tasmania native old growth trees
Rock Island Bend (Made famous by Tasmanian Photographer Peter Dombroksi
Kutikina Cave (Indigenous Aboriginal Caves)
Numerous Tasmanian wildlife encounters
