Tarkine Forest Adventures at Dismal Swamp

This is a strange mix of natural history, art installations, public relations for Forestry Tasmania and a wild and riotous 110-metre slide. The experience is set in the only known sinkhole in the world with a thriving blackwood forest, and it is not hard to find locals who wish it had been left as it was. You can see the chimneys built by nocturnal burrowing crayfish and, if you visit in spring, look out for beautiful white Gunns Plains tree orchids. It is rather a hike to get there (some 32 kilometres southwest of Smithton, along the Bass Highway towards Marrawah), so make the most of the barbecue, picnic and cafe facilities.
