Modern day Queenstown Tasmania still bears some remnants of the unchecked environmental desolation resulting from historic mining but today's Queenstown is a transformation, a contrast from those pioneer days of Brimstone Fire and Acid Rain. Since the mid 1980's immediately after the game changing NO DAMS controversy Queenstown slowly started experiencing remediation. And today, nature is rapidly reclaiming the once scorched barren hill-scapes. Crumbling rusted relics and some still pollutive sulphide open cut rock dumps remain. Come to town, experience and hear these stories from modern day people that are experiencing a bright Green Future on the fringe of absolute wilderness, The Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers World Heritage area.
