Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Franklin River lies in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park at the mid northern area of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Its source is situated at the western edge of the Central Highlands and it continues west towards the West Coast of Tasmania. It was named after an earlier Governor of that state, Sir John Franklin, who later died searching for the Northwest Passage. Although the Lyell Highway passes through it, the catchment area of the river has never had any significant European settlement. There are some archaeological sites that have identified pre-European activity.show more
