All of these well known locations can be reached within an hour or two from Corinna. To the west of Corinna lies the historic fishing village of Pieman Heads with its collection of shacks by the sea. Small settlements to the south at Granville Harbour and Trial Harbour, are rich in history.
A visit to the Pioneer Museum at Zeehan is a must while in the area, and visitors may also be interested in seeing Shirley Smith’s history museum at Trial Harbour. Camping grounds are available at Trial Harbour and Granville Harbour.To the north, the historic mining town of Waratah provides the springboard for a Philosopher’s Falls excursion, and a mining museum that has recently opened. The famous old Bischoff Hotel is still operating.
Adventurous guests can explore nature and mining history along the Whyte, Savage and Donaldson rivers. There is a unique 6km long water race (made from huon pine) to feed a hydraulic sluice near Mt Donaldson, a relic from the mining days. It is about 10km from Corinna. Corinna provides the perfect springboard for these activities and your hosts are able to help tailor experiences to suit your needs.
