Tasmanian Wilderness

Stormy weather shrouds some remote high peaks in Wild Rivers National Park. The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area which covers approximately 1,584,000 hectares (3,914,149 acres), or 20% of the state of Tasmania, represents one of the last true forested wilderness regions on Earth. The rugged terrain experienced severe glaciation during the last ice ages and is littered with steep gorges and craggy peaks.
