Corinna is a lovely modern ecotourism story. An old mining and forestry ghost town on the Pieman River in the Tarkine Wilderness has been turned into an ecotourism venture with an emphasis on preserving the natural heritage, and powered almost entirely by solar power. You can stay in one of 20 new eco-cabins, the old butcher’s shop or general store, the pub that has been converted to accommodate backpackers, or camp (14 campsites). There are canoe trips into the Tarkine and a 500-metre, wheelchair-accessible boardwalk amid ancient huon pines, as well as a multitude of longer walks. There is no mobile phone coverage, no TVs and no hairdryers – just the wilderness.
