The Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area, reserved in 1982, stretches along the spectacularly wild North-West coast of Tasmania, covering over 100 000 hectares. The Roaring Forties generate enormous swells which break on lichen-painted rocks at the foot of windswept dunes. But this place, poetically known as the Edge of the World, attracts rather than deters visitors. It is a hotspot for fishers, surfers, campers, horse riders and recreational vehicle enthusiasts, many of whom regard it as their second home. The area may be remote but the 25 or so permanent residents, shack owners, campers and day trippers all agree the journey to 'the edge' is well worth it.Navigate the area yourself or join a tour group to experience by conventional and 4WD vehicle, on horseback, by canoe and on foot. Arthur-Pieman Recreational Driver Passes are required for use of vehicle tracks off the main roads.
