Stopped here and we certainly knew we did, it was windy, the sea was like a washing machine - spewing foam around. It was a pick me up to awaken the senses and get a feel of the remoteness and isolation of the place.

If you want fresh air, rolling waves and great fishing(when they're biting) then this is the place. Wild to the max with outstanding views of the rugged west.

I visited through the week and no one was around. It was such a peaceful and beautiful place. Pristine and nature abounds. Truly is worth the drive. You are in awe of nature and how unpredictable it is.

It is named the Edge of the World as there is no land going West from this point until Argentina, making it the longest uninterrupted expanse of ocean on Earth. Thanks google lol. Really loved it.

A somewhat meaningless four stars out of five for what is effectively a fairly run-of-the-mill lookout located at the mouth of the Arthur River on Western Tasmania. There is adequate parking and a few interpretive signposting and the boardwalk was in pretty good condition at...More

We had to park and leave our car because the road was unsealed. We walked to the Edge of the World. This is a perfect name for this spot. It has strong winds. The ocean is tumultuous. Waves after waves are showing up in the...More

This is well a visit to witness the power of the sea. The coast is constructed of rocky outcrops, and these rocks are littered with large logs. These timbers having been washed down the Arthur River, and possibly other west coast rivers, have been deposited...More
