THERE IS NO CASUAL CAMPING ALLOWED AT THIS LOCATION

The Collingwood River is the starting point for rafting, kayaking or canoeing trips down the Franklin River on Tasmania's rugged West Coast. There is NO casual camping available at this location; camping is strictly for kayakers completing the Franklin River Rafting trip. The area is a fuel stove only area; strictly no campfires. Much of the Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park is remote, rugged and challenging for even the most experienced adventurers. Along the Lyell Highway, which connects Hobart to the West Coast of Tasmania, you will find a number of facilities. The Franklin River Nature Trail is a popular stopping point. There are picnic tables and toilet facilities and a number of excellent short bush walks available at various points along the highway, including a track to Nelson Falls which is boarded for ease of access. The Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park is also accessible by boat from the west coast township of Strahan where you will find full amenities including shopping, a bakery, hotel and medical services. There are other accommodation options in the area. This is the starting point for experienced adventurers who set out for rafting trips on the Franklin River, and it is also a great spot for some challenging paddling in the river’s Grade 6 rapids.
