Within the Southwest National Park, this walk starts from the end of Australia’s most southerly road and is the eastern end of the popular 7 day South Coast Track to Port Davey.  It’s a great place, so take your lunch and make a good day of it.


Australia's most southern coastline is also the country's most unspoilt. No roads lead to this beautiful, untouched and often wild region. This track will allow you to experience this region the way it has been since long before the impacts that Europeans wrought upon so many parts of Australia.
