1.6m hectares of wilderness. Give me more.

The south-western wilderness of Tasmania as seen from the Tahune air walk 60 m above the Huon river valley. In front lies the beginning of a huge UNESCO world heritage site, covering almost a fourth of the area of Tasmania. The site mostly consists of a pristine, temperate rainforest of Gondwanan origin that is home to the tallest flowering trees in the world; Eucalyptus spp. reach up to 100 m height in this region. I have never tasted the sense of a more remote place than this one. Give me more.
