Piners & Miners

An epic full day adventure. We meet you at your Strahan accommodation 9am and travel to Queenstown to enjoy a guided tour of The Paragon Theatre. 4x4 adventure onto Mt Owen, then into an ancient Huon Pine forest to find some abandoned pioneer gold mines. An underground mining experience in an 1898 copper mine and then a moment of respect and reflection at a site where passionate people made a stand to save the Franklin River from the dozers and the dam.

Then we find the Nora river for a walk of wonder into the Franklin/Gordon world heritage wilderness to arrive at the southern shores of Macquarie harbour. Enjoy some local Tasmanian cuisine, explore the abandoned relics of the North Mt Lyell mining port town before boarding your own charter boat for the journey back up the harbour to Strahan. Arrive at the town wharf in time for dinner.

A full day crammed with adventures. A character building experience and lifelong memories.
