Tarkine Forest Adventures locally known as Dismal Swamp

  • Located at the Northern end of the Tarkine Wilderness is Dismal Swamp a 640 hectare sinkhole (the largest sinkhole in the southern hemisphere). Twenty minutes west of Smithton and only 20 minutes from the beautiful coastline at Marrawah. Dismal Swamp offers an experience that only a very few people ever get to enjoy.
    From the moment you drive through the giant entrance gates you know that this is different. The car parks are surrounded by giant old growth trees and multitudes of man ferns and other natural flora. Red, flame and pink breasted robins as well as blue wrens and a myriad of finches greet you as you follow the paths to the visitor centre. The centre itself is an award winning structure that is perched on the very edge of the Dismal Swamp sinkhole and gives fantastic views over this most unique natural wonder.
