The Bob Brown Foundation is calling on Premier Hodgman to spend the $20 million earmarked for Tasmania’s ‘next iconic track’ in takayna / Tarkine rather than in a protected wilderness area.
Due to the generosity of the public, our foundation has developed the Trans Tarkine Track proposal to the business study stage - way ahead of other possible contenders. The 100 kilometres long TTT does not compromise protected wild country but would, in fact, help protect the Tarkine from competing other resource extraction such as logging or, unlikely as it might be, new mining.
The Trans Tarkine Track has unbeatable prospects for showing walkers the largest temperate rainforest in Australia as well as the wild Tarkine coast. It would complement Aboriginal ownership and guiding with so many overseas visitors wanting a taste of indigenous culture, especially as the takayna / Tarkine coast is the National Heritage listed Western Tasmanian Aboriginal Cultural Landscape.
