You don’t need Australia’s best network …until you do.
The filming I Remember, editing and uploading content to social media was Powered by the Telstra Network.
We needed peace of mind, that when it came to accessing a network, we would experience greater reliability and faster speeds in more places.
Telstra’s new 4G satellite small cell technology 4GX-lite provided us with access to 4G services on the Telstra mobile network as we travelled and worked throughout the remote West Coast, visiting local businesses, communities and isolated hotspots to capture our footage. Had this technology not been available, I Remember West Coast would not have happened.
West Coast Tasmania.
Round here, things aren’t like they are on the mainland. They’re not even like the rest of Tasmania. This is a different place. You’ll encounter the raw, the untouched, the untamed.
A place where the land was formed by intense geological pressures. Where waves carved out a wild coast. Where the trees grew tall, and endured for thousands of years.
Once you’ve answered the call to come, you’ll make your own path, but be prepared - for any weather conditions and for wanting to stop every couple of kilometres to capture that next great scenic shot.
Allow plenty of time to get to the West Coast, and even longer to explore.
Take the time to meet the People of the West. They tell a ripping good yarn. Stories borne of survival. What it means to be West Coast Tough.
Discover nature. True Nature. Your true nature. All it takes is a short trip. Just outside your comfort zone.
Cruising with the newly launched Spirit of the Wild on our national award-winning Gordon River Cruise, you will experience quiet cruising with electric motors while taking in the tranquil surrounds of the Gordon River. Our dedicated guides and character-based interpretation will take you through the history of this remarkable place as you cruise across Macquarie Harbour to Hells Gates and then on to the Gordon River.
Whether you’re going on a road trip through the Australian outback, moving houses, or partaking on a weekend getaway with friends- we’ve got the transport covered. Look no further and hire a car from Thrifty!

The story of how farming Atlantic Salmon in Tasmania became the industry that is today is a fascinating one. It all began when a bright spark in Tassie’s government thought that the Huon Valley would be a good place to trial farming salmon.
Huon Aquaculture, or Huon, was founded in 1986 by Peter and Frances Bender in…you guessed it, the Huon Valley! It was a time when salmon farming pioneers were numerous and farming technology was in its infancy.
What started out as an employee and a dingy, is now a company listed in the Australian Securities Exchange employing over 600 people throughout our beautiful state.
Today, only three salmon farming companies are still operational and they all farm in the West Coast’s Macquarie Harbour. The Harbour is not only picturesque, but an important part of Huon’s operation as it’s unique mix of fresh and salt water provides favourable growing conditions for Ocean Trout. In fact, all of the Ocean Trout that Huon produces is farmed in the Harbour!
Huon invests a great deal of resources into developing innovative farming technologies while also supporting the communities in which they operate so that they too can benefit from the success. The entire Huon team from biologists to welders, divers to factory hands, accountants to truck drivers and industry-leading sales and marketers, all play their part and take pride in producing the Huon product and community we see today.

We have daily demonstrations of a 100+ year old working saw and the mill itself is full of treasures that you can wander and enjoy at your own leisure.
Specialising in the unique Tasmanian timber Huon Pine we also have a selection of other Tasmanian timbers available. Our sales include slabs, turning blanks, racks of rough sawn timbers and our very popular offcut bin. Our gift shop is stocked with handcrafted items made on site by us at the mill along with a selection of locally and Tasmanian made items.
We are open daily (times may vary during Winter) and ENTRY IS FREE. Our talk and demonstration is held each day at approximately 3pm.
