Corinna Wilderness Experience camping area
Tiny Corinna – named for the Tasmanian tiger – lies on the southern edge of the vast, heritage-listed Tarkine rainforest wilderness at the Pieman River crossing. Limited camping and riverside van sites are at the Tarkine Hotel, close to the beautiful Huon Pine walk. There are more walks through ferny forest to Lovers Falls or Donaldsons Peak, while the Pieman River Cruise is not to be missed. Corinna is 133 km south of Arthur River on the winding, unsealed Western Explorer (C249), or 69 km from Waratah on the B23, then the unsealed C247. From the south, take the Western Explorer from Zeehan, reaching the Pieman River after 153 km, then the Fatman Barge across the river to Corinna.

This campsite is located in Pieman River State Reserve
Declared in 1936, this long, thin reserve protects magnificent riverside rainforests of Huon pine. It extends along both sides of the Pieman River from the Reece Dam at the base of Lake Pieman to the Pieman Heads in Hardwicke Bay, where the river empties into the Southern Ocean. The tiny hamlet of Corinna is halfway along the reserve.
