Sunset
Mar. 2021
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.

Edge of the World

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.

Flat earth

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!

Simply awesome to stand at one of the platforms and look out at the majesty and power of the ocean, lined with literally thousands of huge logs that have come from who knows where, a testament to the power of the ocean.

WORTH A LOOK IF YOUR DOWN THAT WAY

At the mouth of the Arthur river, nice views of ocean etc, good story about the driftwood that covers almost every beach and rock area you can see.

Certainly worth a look where the mighty Arthur River comes out. Lots of timber washed down from the floods & nothing on the horizon. Really great.

Blowing a Gale
Feb. 2021
Blowing a gale, as you would expect, but great views and well worth a visit. We did this as part of the Tarkine Drive.

Worth the Visit
Mar. 2021
We were staying in Arthur River and this wasn’t all that far from our accommodation. Albeit it was windy enough to take the fillings out of your teeth (I suspect a normal state of affairs when the next land mass is South America) it was an exhilarating place to visit with spectacular vistas along the coast.

Great view
Mar. 2021
Most pleasant lookout over the rocks and estuary of the Arthur River. Coastal dunes and the interesting rocks make it worth the visit.
