The SouthWest

Ancient rainforests, sprawling button grass plains, sub-alpine moorlands, towering mountains, mesmerizing boulder fields, white-sand beaches, and vast lakes make up the Southwest Wilderness—Tasmania’s largest National Park and World Heritage Area. The diversity of this region is unparalleled to any other.

This nature-rich region is home to over 300 rare varieties of ferns, lichen and wildflowers, ancient Huon pines, some of the tallest Swamp Gums in the world, Sassafras, Myrtle, Celery Top Pine, as well as the world’s tallest flowering plant – the Centurion or Mountain Ash.
