Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park
A region of dramatic mountain peaks, ancient rainforest, deep river valleys, and spectacular gorges, this park is most famous for the pristine rivers that twist their way through the wilderness. The Franklin River itself has become synonymous with Australia's largest conservation battle—a fight which lasted from the 1960s into the 80s to save the Franklin from a proposed hydro-electric dam and power plant, which would have flooded several natural features and lakes. The legendary waterway, which Outside named one of the world’s best whitewater journeys on earth, established The Wilderness Society as well as the Green Party (both founded by Tasmanian conservationist Bob Brown) and continues to inspire awe and action among locals and travelers today.
