Save Recherche Bay

Recherche Bay is about as far south as you can drive in Tasmania. We camped for years at Cockle Creek, quite close to there. It is the site of the landing of a French expedition which pre-dates the British landing there by almost ten years. As seems with most of the beautiful areas in Tasmania, it is under threat by the woodchippers. There's a special feature in this month's Leatherwood Online. There's some beautiful pictures by Bob Brown here , and here's a timeline of the battle that's currently raging.
