    ... is near Maydena in the South West of the island, roughly 3 hours’ drive from Hobart and covers 60 km2 of temperate rainforest. It lies just outside the World Heritage Area. This area of low relief valleys is a known habitat for threatened species of flora and fauna, including Eucalyptus Regnans, Sallow Wattle, Myrtle Elbow Orchid, Grey Goshawk, and Spotted-tail Quoll.

    In 2009, the Upper Florentine received attention in the media for a series of arrests, made by Tasmanian Police, of protesters taking part in various pro-conservationist rallies. (Source: Wikipedia)
