Popular viewing area overlooking the Southern Ocean as you wait for the must do Arthur River cruise. Turn right at sign soon after crossing the bridge over the Arthur River. Well graded gravel road to the view point.

A wild and woolly experience on a windy day. Great views out to sea and along the coast. Plenty of driftwood on the beach and surrounds from nearby rivers.

Look west from here and the first land you'll see is South America. Beautiful piece of coast line 5 mins from the main road of the Tarkine Drive. There is a car park and toilets, and an information board, but to be honest just enjoy the scenery.

Gorgeous opportunity to swim in pristine waters at the edge of the world (next stop Argentina). Wasn't warm but great photographic opportunity and a great experience. Tranquil times indeed! Wonderful.

We were not convinced the long drive from Stanley would be worth the hour drive , but we enjoyed the drive through the forest and a lunch stop at dismal swamp. From here it was a thirty minute drive to the edge of the world.Photos don't do justice to the area as this place is picture perfect amazing views.

Stopped off as we drove around north west Tassie. The power of the wind and waves and the trees dashed against the rocks. Certainly is different to other areas and worth a stop off if you are driving past.

Caught the ferry to Tassie, along with my caravan (& wife & dog). We wanted to see it all so headed up to the north west area. Had a list of things we MUST see, one of which was the edge of the world. I just had not seen anything like this before. You can imagine waves crashing to shore... More

Was a little early for the Arthur River Cruise and they directed us to The Edge of the World. Weather was fine with a moderate wind speed and 2 metre seas. The resulting view and wave action was spectacular and it truly felt like we were at the edge of the world. Couldn't resist kissing my wife of forty eight... More

We came to the Edge of the World a few weeks ago while exploring Tasmania and on the home stretch of our around Australia-Tasmania drive. Not much out here just rugged beauty, crashing waves and wind, if you catch the sunset here, consider yourself one of the luckiest people on earth as it left us speechless.
