Driving Directions

Entrance is on the N side of the Lyell Highway, 100m W of the bridge.

The Franklin - Gordon Wild Rivers National Park lies in the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
It is a region of dramatic mountain peaks, beautiful rainforest, deep river valleys and spectacular gorges. The park is famous for the wild and pristine rivers that twist their way through the wilderness.

The Franklin River itself has become synonymous with Australia's largest conservation battle – the battle to save the Franklin from a proposed hydroelectric power scheme which would have flooded the river.

The Lyell Highway winds for 56 kilometres through the heart of the Franklin - Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. Take your time to enjoy the drive through the park. Along the Lyell Highway there are several short walks and picnic stops along the way that will allow you to discover the grandeur and beauty of the Wild Rivers region.

The park can also be visited by cruise boats which operate out of the west coast village of Strahan.

Hard to find. There was a little bit of road beside the bridge with a campervan parked there but certainly did not look like somewhere to take a caravan. The other side of the bridge had a rail over a road so wonder if it has been closed.
