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.
The wilderness is a silent untouched place at heart. It must remain that way. The silence is precious and rare. To listen and hear nothing is becoming such a rare experience. It is no place for buildings, shacks or luxury tourist camps. No place to set up camps for thrill seeking well heeled visitors who are helicoptered in and out, as they can’t be bothered quietly and respectfully walking in on a carefully defined pathway. The wilderness must remain only lightly touched, so that traces of man do not remain once they have left these pristine sanctuaries. These few remaining pristine places in Tasmania are amongst the last such places on this overcrowded planet. They are not a resource to develop. They are perfect as they are.
