Franklin River, Australia
The Franklin River, located in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, runs for a total of 77 miles. It begins its journey at the scenic western end of the Central Highlands and flows towards the west coast of Tasmania, where it empties into the sea. Among the many scenic areas along the river, you will also encounter some archeological sites that have identified pre-European activity. The Franklin River gets its name from a previous governor of the state, Sir John Franklin, who later died searching for the Northwest Passage.
