Tarkine Together

For tens of thousands of years the Tarkine which covers 447,000 hectares of Wilderness in the North West region of Tasmania, has been revered by Indigenous Cultures who`s very way of life depended on an intimate Nature / Culture balance. Today we view such places as commodities for Forestry, Mining Resource Extraction Industries and Tourism.

What is the innate value of a wild and ancient place?

Join Lisa Gormley (Home and Away) as we journey through the last remnants of Ancient Gondwanaland’s’ Forest Rivers and Trek along the Rugged Tarkine Roaring 40’s Coastline to where the Dunes meet the Cool Temperate Rainforest.

Tarkine Together is the story about the effect of Wilderness on the Human Experience. This documentary aims to give a voice to the Tarkine, and explore why the Tarkine has been amongst Australia`s longest running Conservation Debates.

For Forty years intense controversial debates have raged over the Islands remaining unprotected Wild Zones. Hydro Dams, Open Cut Mining and more recently Old Growth Forest Logging Proposals have gone head to head with those people wanting Tasmania’s remaining Wild Zone Wilderness Protected for their Universally Recognised Natural and Cultural Heritage Values.

“ I hope as many people can see this film as possible and that it will touch their hearts. The Tarkine deserves our attention and urgent protection. ” – Heide
