Franklin Rafting River Care Project
The Franklin River is renowned for its pristine wilderness as well as its world class white-water rafting. World Expeditions pioneered commercial rafting on the Franklin in 1978 and ever since has contributed to every campaign to protect this magnificent river. Whilst the river environment is close to pristine, in recent years our local guides have spotted isolated outbreaks of noxious weeds, such as blackberry, on the riverbanks. This project works with Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife to remove these weeds and ensure the integrity of the wilderness values of the Franklin River are maintained. Of course the safest way to travel the river is guided in a white-water raft, so this is both a classic rafting expedition and a positive way to contribute to the care and custodianship of one of the worlds greatest wilderness rivers.
