takayna / TARKINE TALES : Passion and Protest

The Tarkine is a beautiful remote part of North West Tasmania supporting Australia’s largest tract of cool temperate rainforest, spanning wild windswept beaches, extensive buttongrass plains, wild rivers and majestic ancient forests. The Bob Brown Foundation is campaigning for the protection of the Tarkine as a National Park and recognised for it’s World Heritage values.

For decades, the Tarkine has inspired passion and protest in people campaigning to protect this remarkable place. In the first of our series of Tarkine Tales, hear Bob Brown speak on 40 years of passion for this wild landscape, Michelle Foale on the heart of the protest movement in the 90s and Sharnie Everett on the Tarkine’s Aboriginal heritage.
