About the region

The small settlement of Arthur River is named after the river and is home to fewer than 40 permanent residents. Located on Tasmania’s rugged west coast, Arthur River lies at the mouth of Tasmania’s only major river which is completely wild; a river in the heart of the Tarkine Wilderness which has never been logged or dammed; a river where one of the world’s largest tract of cool temperate rainforest drains into the mighty Southern Ocean.

Centuries old forest giants of brown top stringybark, blackwood, myrtle, leatherwood, and sassafras have become the foundation of coastal dunes and lay buried in the sand for  thousands of years. The reason  this place is called “The Edge of the World” is because the battered coastline and isolated river mouth lie 15,000km from the next land mass which is Patagonia, the south east  coast of Argentina.
