The Living Unconformity

Where the Queen meets the King is a swirling discordance of colour, chemistry and history. A guided walk.

Join geologist Dr Keith Corbett for a walk through a special rainforest, with a history related to a huge bushfire, to see the extraordinary meeting of two very different rivers. The orange-coloured Queen River, carrying its 100-year-old legacy of mine waste, meets the mighty dark-grey King River, hurtling down the gorge after creating power at a power station just upstream. Hear the stories of the rivers, the forest, the old myrtle survivors, and the glaciers which once filled the valleys.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita/Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
