Interesting and scenic drive, just be aware of the gravel road for most of the way. Stop for lunch at the pub at the Pieman River ferry.

A very large area but ou can only access parts with tracks. We camped at Camp Elsewhere, which is large. Check out the really sheltered areas because winds can be ferocious . Plenty of places to access the wild coast and beaches.
