The drive from Arthur River to Corina is not *really* a 4wd track - its a graded road, but it is a great drive, and one that anyone on a 4wd holiday of Tassie would be a fool to bypass. There are several good tracks that come off this road, so if you are after hard tracks, this is a good way to find them - just look for the muddy trucks and follow them :D
This route will save about 200km's if you need to get from Arthur River to Zeehan - its a long way round via sealed road. $wd's will average 80k's an hour along this road, but watchout for the occasional camper van which will probably be doing 30 - the road is very loose, rocky and dusty, and good AT or better tyres are required to maintain a decent speedalong here.
Corina Ferry itself is a great experience too - the river is relatively narrow, but it is so deep, fast flowing, and floods so regularly that it isnt possible to put a bridge across.
