Spero Wilderness Slides & Stories (Hobart)

Thursday, March 07, 2024 at 06:00 PM · 23 rsvps
Ferntree Tavern in Fern Tree, Australia

The ‘Spero-Wanderer Wilderness’ area is a unique, remote and frequently overlooked 130,000ha area located along the highly remote south-western coastline of Lutruwita/Tasmania, south of Macquarie Harbour. This incredible, wild and rugged region is home to some of the most vast and remote landscapes outside the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. 

The Wilderness Society sent two teams deep into ‘the Spero-Wanderer’ in December last year - one, a team of photographers, another a team of geographers, ecologists, and outdoor-enthusiasts. Join us for slides & stories, and get a glimpse of this rugged and remote wilderness.

When: Thursday 7th March, 6-7:30PM

Where: Ferntree Tavern, 680 Huon Road, Fern Tree

Speakers from the trips include:

  • Alice Hardinge, Wilderness Society Tasmania Acting Campaign Manager
  • Jimmy Cordwell, Wilderness Society Tasmania Campaigner
  • Brett Meikle, Wilderness Photographer
  • Marlee Hurn, Geographer & Wilderness Guide

Similarly impressive features characterise the rest of the south-west coast outside the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, where geomorphic and biological processes continue relatively undisturbed, in an environment with some of the highest wave-energies on earth. This region of the island is free from modern human intervention and development and is exceptionally remote, with very strong wilderness/remoteness values. The ‘Spero-Wanderer Wilderness’ is of unquestionably high conservation value, consistent with those of the neighbouring Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area - the highest rated World Heritage area on earth.

This is a free event, but reserve your seat today to avoid missing out!

 

This event will take place on the sovereign and unceded lands of the Palawa people, the rightful owners of Lutruwita / Tasmania.

Parking & Public Access: Street-parking is available although it is minimal. Public transport is available to Ferntree and within 20 metres of the venue. The event will be held in the rear of the venue, which is wheelchair accessible.
