Now that the Greens have been trampled to let the miners loose in the Tasmanian Tarkine wilderness, a glimpse of the paradise that is about to be lost. My home town, Irishtown, is about 10 k down from Smithton in the top of this map.
In an attempt to adopt the iconic Tarkine brand for its own perverted and duplicitous activities, Forestry Tasmania has changed the name of its tourist theme park attraction called Dismal Swamp near Smithton in Tasmania to Tarkine Forest Adventures. The Dismal Swamp slippery dip has been operating for four years and it attracted 24,000 visitors last year.
