I had seen some dramatic and inspiring photos of the 'Edge of the World' but unfortunately or not we visited on a calm morning and the surf and spray were far less wild than perhaps I had hoped. Still it was an foaming and photogenic piece of coastline, with its swirling currents at the river mouth and mounds of bleached driftwood. There are toilet facilities and an impressive stone-and-timber shelter containing seats and a barbecue. That certainly spoke to how wild the weather might be here.

beautiful views of the coast. Board walks and viewing platforms are good and a real photo opportunity. Toilets are available after a long drive and there is a small shop with limited items on the way out.

Located at the mouth of the Arthur River - boardwalks to explore, toilet facilities, undercover picnic tables and BBQs and a small monument. Worth the effort to brag you've been to the Edge of the World.

Wild and windy day at the edge of the world lookout, looking out at a turbulent ocean all the way across to South America. Very scenic, great for photography. Piles of driftwood. Well worth visiting the lookout when driving through Arthur River.

Down a bit of a gravel road, you will find a carpark with a short walk around a knoll that provides an elevated view of The Edge of The World.

Wander down to the plaque for a great sunset, colours bouncing off the bleached log-piles on the beach

Today we travelled on the Tarkine Drive, through the wilderness of NW Tas. Past Smithton, Marrawah then on to remote Arthur River, where we visited “The Edge of the World” a rugged coastline point, where the waves have travelled uninterrupted some ~20,000 km, from Sth America.

This was a beautiful spot and is the last land between here and Argentina. The ocean was wild and rough the day we went and was just beautiful. Lot of driftwood had been washed up on the shores. It really was an amazing sight to see.

For there to be an edge of the world it must truely be a flat earth.... seriously though you can just peer at the expanses of the southern ocean and the view goes on forever... another highlight!
