The Best Walks in South West Tasmania

In the south western reaches of Tasmania, nature reigns supreme with wild untamed rivers, rugged terrain and imposing mountain peaks. Located at the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and just an hour away from Strahan, the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park radiates with a network of multiday hiking trails or short walks along the Lyell Highway, offering convenient accessibility to the renowned Franklin River. For other south west coast walks in Tasmania, the Southwest National Park is adorned with vast beaches, buttongrass plains and options to sleep by the ocean. This region of Tassie is ideal for hikers seeking a challenge.
