About the region
Stretching from the Arthur River in the north to the Pieman River in the south, the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area is part of the larger takayna/Tarkine area. It’s dynamic landscape is constantly being shaped by wind, fire and water.
As far as the eye can see, stretch the ancient homelands of the North West Aboriginal People. They have lived on this land for at least 35,000 years and were the southernmost people in the world at the time of the last ice-age. Vast middens, hut depressions and rock art are some of the evidence of this powerful, cultural landscape.
The Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area is a powerful place with a presence that brings a sense of calm and wonder to those who seek to explore the broad, windswept ocean beaches, heath-covered plains and mystical inland forests.
From the Murchison Highway (A10), take the turn off to Waratah (B23). Follow this road to Savage River, where it turns into the Corinna Rd (C247) and then onto Corinna. Access the walk from the car park beside the river 7622.
