Corinna is one of the last places where the supposedly now extinct thylacine or Tasmanian tiger used to roam

Corinna is one of the last places where the supposedly now extinct thylacine or Tasmanian tiger used to roam. The very last thylacines caught were actually from further north, but the remoteness of the bush around Corinna makes it possible, at least according to the locals, that a few might still survive. The interesting home-built ferry that takes vehicles across the Pieman River at Corinna is called the Fatman. Cruises down the Pieman River are based here.
