The Donaldson River is a tributary of the Pieman River in Tasmania’s Tarkine and in fact a significant river in its own right. It snakes its way across the buttongrass plains and rainforests of the Tarkine Hinterland before joining the Pieman near Corinna.
The river crosses the infamous “Road to Nowhere” but other than that is best accessed by either kayak or on the “Sweet Water” cruise from Corinna. The Sweet Water is a much smaller vessel than the main cruise boat – the Arcadia II, which allows it to venture into the narrower waters of the Donaldson as well as stopping at the beautiful Lovers Falls.
I have a 5 day Tarkine Photography Workshop coming up in April (full details here) which includes both of these cruises so we can experience the wild west coast at the Pieman Heads as well as these hidden gems. These shots are all snaps I captured during the cruise during this workshop earlier this year.
I am currently taking bookings for the April trip and anyone interested in waterfalls, fungi, magnificent old myrtle rainforest as well as sunset, night sky and post processing sessions should get in touch straight away! There are currently two places available
