A beautiful island in Southern Tasmania.
They must be preserved for future generations. Not developed, over visited and exploited. They are perfect as they are. These places are not tourist sites – they are sacred places. Our connection to ancient forests and rare animals. Not five star tourist cabins and helicopters.
Alpine Lake in central Tasmania.
Winter conditions can arrive at anytime of the year in these beautiful places.
This wilderness is irreplaceable, wild, pristine but endangered by those who do not understand, nor care, for its fragile nature. It is not a resource to be harvested. It is a heritage to be treasured and preserved for future generations of humans and wildlife.
As the summer sun sets, the air cools and light fades -the ancient forest transforms into a place alive with noisy marsupials, night bird calls and shadows. It is a wonderful place to be. Tasmanian forest creatures are at their most alive and active at night.
Easily accessible wilderness so close to the capital city.
There is no need for the proposed cablecar. To build such an eyesore is a travesty on this beautiful wilderness. We must do no further damage to this forest and leave it undisturbed for future generations to enjoy.
