The Arthur River is one of the Tasmania's seven major rivers, and is the only riverwhere you can take a cruise that is completely wild. The Arthur River is some 170kms long and has never been logged or dammed - there hasn't been a bushfire through this part of the Tarkine Wilderness for almost 650 years. The river remains much as it has been for thousands of years. A cruise on the Arthur RIver is highly recommended when camping Arthur River.
