Gordonvale - a world heritage opportunity
Your donation today will help to protect this very special natural place for conservation in perpetuity
Gordonvale’s greatest natural asset is its World Heritage Area context and the surrounding Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park – a place of global significance. Nestled in a large glacial valley known as the ‘Vale of Rasselas’, Gordonvale is the traditional home territory of the Pangerninghe clan of the Big River nation and a popular stopover for bushwalkers on the iconic walk into Lake Rhona. It is surrounded by spectacular scenery including the peaks of Great Dome (1,232m) and Wylds Craig (1,286m). It then opens to a wide landscape of undulating buttongrass plains, riparian vegetation, scrub and forest which is home to Tasmania’s fabulous wildlife that find refuge in vegetation cover. Formed thousands of years ago during Pleistocene times, the area is anchored in alluvial sands, gravel and mud, from which terraces rise to an elevated forest platform. Small pools are scattered throughout, teeming with frogs and other wonderful aquatic life.
Thank you for your help conserving biodiversity and protecting our wonderful plants and wildlife.

By joining our Regular Giving Program you will directly support our important conservation monitoring program across our permanent reserves
In our 11 years of operation, with the help of financial supporters like you, we have created 11 permanent reserves across Tasmania. These reserves contain some of the most diverse and under-protected ecosystems that are now preserved for future generations.
Each reserve is unique and its values are identified in specific management plans which include long-term monitoring programs. The TLC's conservation work is science driven and many of the exciting programs link into conservation programs state-wide or nationally.
We fund our on-going conservation work through grants, the TLC Foundation and our Regular Giving Program.
