The dark waters of the Gordon flow through the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area before quietly entering Macquarie Harbour. Cruise boats from Strahan explore several kilometres into the rivers wide, calm lower reaches, with their often perfect reflections of riverside rainforest. Disembark at Heritage Landing and follow a short boardwalk track to see ancient Huon pines.
As the area is part of the Franklin – Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, National Park passes are required for entry. For full details please visit the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife website.
