Wild winds and seas courtesy of the 'Roaring Forties', drift wood (whole trees actually) from the local Tarkine forest and further afield. One of the western most points of Tasmania, with no land of any kind until Argentina, this is a special and wild place....More

Wild weather greeted me at the Edge of the World lookout. Terrific views up and down the coast and back towards the Arthur River bridge. Amazed at the amount of trees that are washed down from the Tarkine Wilderness area.

Well signposted with a short drive on sealed, gravel - a few bumps with one short steep part and to a sealed car park. Well maintained board walk with detailed information area. The rugged landscape, wild waves, drift wood and sea spray. Exhilarating. #crazycarrsgapyear #jandaljournals

You only need to gaze at the river entrance for a few minutes to realize we are at the mercy of nature. Well worth a look if youre travelling past.

Well worth going for a look. The sea was extremely rough the day we went and the wind very strong. Dropped some pebbles into the sea - like you have to do when visiting Lands End in England

The Edge of the World is a short drive on a gravel road at the edge of the Arthur River township. It has a fantastic view of the coast which is the last landmark between here and Patagonia. The coastline is very rugged and the...More
