Mother Earth - Tarkine Rainforest by 


The Rainforests of the Tarkine, some 177,000 hectares, include the largest unbroken stand of rainforest in Australia.

A relic from the ancient continent, Gondwanaland, the Tarkine rainforest is one of the most significant temperate rainforests on earth. It is home to 56 threatened and endangered species, such as the Giant Freshwater Crayfish – the world’s largest freshwater invertebrate and the Tasmanian Wedge Tailed Eagle – the largest Eagle in Australia.

These rainforests are recognised as being one of the most significant tracts of temperate rainforest on earth, and are under imminent threat. While logging of pure stands of rainforest is occurring in and around the periphery of the Tarkine, the logging industry is pushing the Tasmanian Government to allow logging through the heart of the Tarkine Rainforests. This would divide the rainforest and seriously fragment the Tarkine’s wilderness qualities.

    very mysterious yet welcoming shot, great perpective and composition
    and thanks for the information. Hard to get my heaad around the idea that anyone would actually want to chop down such long-lived majesty for the sake of something so temporary as money.

    Beautifully lush and almost magical. It looks so inviting, especially in the heat we’ve been having and still have to come. I love the way the “stepping stones” lead you into the clearing and the lovely light filtering down through the trees. I hope fervently that logging is NOT allowed in this wonderful place. Lovely image, rhana.

    This is a fabulous area of Tasmania which everyone should try to visit. Your image sums it up perfectly. It’s really difficult to believe that the logging industry could even contemplate any destruction of this area.
