Al though the presence of Aborigines along Tasmania's western
coastline has long been known, and the Beginners Luck cave site in the
Florentine Valley shows human occupation in south central Tasmania
during the Pleistocene, these two localities are separated by the often
densely forested wilderness of central western and southwestern Tasmania.
This region consists of a series of parallel valleys which extend from
near the south coast northwards towards the dolerite mountains which lie
east of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Much of the
area has been incorporated within the new Wild Rivers National Park,
but hydro-electric dams are proposed within it.
