Southern Edge

Open map

What lies beyond

Find life on a human scale and nature on a grand scale at Tasmania’s southern-most edge, where the Southern Ocean lashes the South West Wilderness.

A journey through southern Tasmania is framed by water and defined by river and sea. Explore the hidden coves of the broad D’Entrecasteaux Channel, swing by the farm-gate stalls and cider houses of the Huon Valley, and detour by ferry for just-shucked oysters and farmhouse cheeses on Bruny Island. Venture into the South West Wilderness for wildlife watching, stargazing and solitude, and pause at Australia’s southern-most edge - next stop, Antarctica.
