Camping Arthur River Pieman Campground
The Arthur Pieman Conservation Area stretches along the wild and windswept North West coast of Tasmania and covers an area in excess of 100,000 hectares. Much of the reserve is between the Arthur River in the north, the Pieman River in the south and the Frankland and Donaldson Rivers to the east. It is a dynamic landscape which is being continually reshaped by wind, fire and water. The area has a rich Aboriginal heritage which has left markers in the landscape, such as middens, hut depressions, artefact scatters and rock art. These special places and their associated cultural landscapes show that Aboriginal people in the past had a special relationship with the land - a relationship which continues with Aboriginal people today.
The Arthur Pieman Conservation Area provides a range of opportunities for recreation, from surfing and diving to recreational off-road driving and fishing. From Arthur River you can head into the Tarkine Wilderness Reserve forests and enjoy a cruise on the lower reaches of the Arthur River, where you will find tall eucalypt forests and rainforests out to the sea. Use Arthur River as the base from which to venture out on a 4WD beach or forest trip. Arthur River borders the Arthur Pieman River Protected Area where you will find facilities for camping, picnics and barbecues. There is plenty of wildlife including wombats, kangaroos and pademelons plus bird species including Tasmanian rosellas, wedge-tail eagles and orange-breasted parrots. The Western Explorer route is unsealed and takes you to Corinna on the Pieman River some 100 kilometres to the South. When exploring or camping in this area, always be well prepared for all types of weather. The west coast of Tasmania receives the full impact of the Roaring Forties, meaning that warm clothing and wet weather gear is a must all year round. These are informal camping areas with limited facilities; it is advised that you bring your own camping shower, carry firewood, water and a composting toilet. There are no rubbish bins provided and campers must take with them. There are no powered sites available in any Arthur River Pieman Camping grounds.
