Came out on the 10 Day trip with Brett Jim and Klaudia. The Franklin is world class rafting. This World Heritage area is a hard one to beat in any measure. Brett and the team are experienced, professional, and love this river. Going down with them was a treat and I would do it again in an instance. Also Klaudia is an incredible wilderness cook so you have that to look forward to when rafting with Water by Nature.

Be aware that the signage says picnic stop but there is a short walk that is a definite must see. Lots of beautiful lichens and mosses all throughout this rainforest. There are also toilets available.

Four of us just finished 10 amazing days in the beautiful Tasmanian wilderness rafting the Franklin River. We highly recommend going with Water by Nature. We had the time of our life, thrills, spills, wildlife (birds including sea eagles & 2 platypus) & tranquility. Our trip leader Scotty, with rafting guide, Blake, were fantastic - very experienced, safe, hard workers & great senses of humour. The meals they prepared each day & evening were unbelievable - the master chefs of the camp stove. Thanks guys for memories that will last a lifetime.

Not one of the best walks we did during our trip but it seems to be popular with families as there is a boardwalk, so walking is easier than some.

I expected better views of the river, but whether the erosion of part of the path during recent floods, or the growth of the trees has changed this I don't know. Pleasant enough walk and a welcome rest on a long journey. It is recommended as one of the 60 great short walks.
