The small settlement of Arthur River is named after the river and is home to fewer than 40 permanent residents. Located on Tasmania’s rugged west coast, Arthur River lies at the mouth of Tasmania’s only major river which is completely wild; a river in the heart of the Tarkine Wilderness which has never been logged or dammed; a river where the world’s greatest tract of cool temperate rainforest drains into the mighty Southern Ocean.
M.V. “George Robinson” is a beautiful old steel-hulled craft fitted out with Tasmanian timber and brass. This iconic vessel has been plying the Arthur River and feeding the sea eagles for 32 years.
