We are volunteers committed to caring for the Franklin River and its National Park. We will be removing weeds along the River banks, maintaining walking routes and camp sites and promoting the spectacular values of the area. Due to the nature of this work rafting experience is a prerequisite for members of this group.

Where we work

Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, part of the Tasmanian World Heritage Wilderness Area. The Franklin River was the subject of one of Australia’s great environmental debates that eventually resulted in the area being declared a National Park and World Heritage Area. This beautiful wild river is still a magnet for white water adventurers and wilderness lovers from all over the world.

What we do

We are volunteers committed to caring for the Franklin River and its National Park. We will be removing weeds along the River banks, maintaining walking routes and camp sites and promoting the spectacular values of the area.

We are currently initiating a project to restore the 1970s hydro hut at Sir John Falls on the Gordon River to a safe comfortable level for ongoing public use. Funds will be required to undertake this work and the group is planning the project in consultation with PWS, funding bodies and other interested groups.
