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.
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.
So good to step inside out of the wind and snow.
This shelter hut is over a hundred years old, located in Mount Field National Park.
