What a wild place it could be. The evidence of bigger seas was strewn over the rocks and above the high tide mark. It is places like this that makes the west coast drive worthwhile.

It would be nice if there was more information about WHY it’s called the Edge of the World and not just info about the local Aboriginals. Well maintained and toilets provided.

Literally! Feels so desolate here. WILD sea with HUGE crashing waves. No place for boats or swimming. However a place were plenty of driftwood stockpiles. Definitely a must see destination traveling around Tasmania.

Can’t add much more to the other reviews here. Hard to imagine what’s in front of you when looking West....nothing but water until South America!! Kind of puts our early explorers voyages into perspective! Regardless of the time of year, have a jacket with you....More

This is a sight not to be missed. It is one of the stopping points on the route of the Tarkine Drive (self drive tour). A spectacular view point of the rocks and shore complete with a wonderful poem on a plaque.
