Tarkine Forest Adventures at Dismal Swamp is located approximately 30 minutes from Smithton and allows visitors to experience the unique ecology of a blackwood forest. Built around the Dismal Swamp sinkhole, Tarkine Forest Adventures offers visitors a range of adventure-based attractions.
Visitors can journey to the base of the sinkhole via an exhilarating 110-metre slide to the forest floor. Boardwalks and pathways around the sinkhole allow visitors to explore the environment whilst viewing incredible Tasmanian artwork that merges design with nature.
Those seeking a more adventurous experience can utilise a series of world-class mountain bike tracks that are suitable for beginners through to experienced riders.
Tarkine Forest Adventures also offer after-dark tours of the area that allow visitors to venture into the blackwood forest by lantern to discover a world rarely seen. Learn about blackwood trees, the Tasmanian Tiger and the lives of the early pioneers through a bushman’s tour, during which guides tell stories of the hardship and struggle of the first European settlers to the region
In the award-winning visitor centre, enjoy fine Tasmanian food and wine in the café or visit the gift shop, which features beautiful Tasmanian crafts and produce.
