What a great way to see the Wild West coast of Tassie. Nothing between this spot and Argentina. Massive logs piled up at the mouth of the Arthur River gives you a real understanding of the power of water.

Six kilometres of some of the worst gravel road. The scenery is pleasant, but Margaret River must be the Edge of the Universe

There's not much at the Edge except what you can imagine yourself. This is not hard to do as the wind blows in your face. There are toilets and a little bit of information, but what's most important is what's in your head as you...More

Easy parking, facilities available, & a short walk to a look out with spectacular views illustrating the power of the sea.
