My husband and I just completed a five day coastal walk along Tasmanian's takayna/Tarkine coast from the mouth of the Pieman River to Temma Harbour a distance of around 70km, a basic guide for the walk can be found in a book called Tarkine Trails by Phill Pullinger.
The experience was great the weather was spectacular except for one evening, the landscapes and seascapes were epic, we collected and ate fresh seafood and most memorably witnessed the outstanding evidence of occupation of this landscape by Tasmanian Aboriginal People.
Commonly known as middens the accumulated remains of thousands of generations of living sites along the coast are now exposed due to erosion and damage from vehicles and insensitive land use.
The whole stretch of coast line we walked is very obviously one continuous living place, these middens often appear to be sand dunes until you understand that the sand and humus has been formed over the stone tools, food remains and family lives of people.
I'll be posting a selection each days images separately and in reverse order (because that's the way I'm editing), feel free to contact me if you have questions.
Brooks Creek to Temma Harbour
A lot of walking of 4wd tracks for this stretch, not so fun.
