MAP OF SOUTHWEST WILDERNESS

Interactive Map of Southwest Wilderness Tasmania  |  Visit in Comfort

This map of Southwest Wilderness Tasmania will show you just how remote this area really is. The southwest wilderness area of Tasmania is absolutely huge.

It includes the Southwest National Park, Lake Pedder, the South Coast Track, Bathurst Harbour, Melaleuca, the Hartz Mountains, Geeveston and the Arve Valley, Federation Peak, Strathgordon, Lake Gordon, Cox Bight, New Harbour, New River Lagoon and Port Davey.

It can easily be accessed by air from Hobart, either on day trips or one way for backpackers and hikers.

Getting There  |  Map of Southwest Wilderness

The Southwest Wilderness area of Tasmania is about as far from civilisation as you can get easily.

It’s a Long Way There  |  Map of Southwest Wilderness Tasmania

A simple one hour plane flight takes you from Hobart to a point where the only access is by foot.

If you are prepared to walk about 5 days in either directions on the South Coast Track, you will make it. There are no roads to Bathurst Harbour – you have to fly, walk, or go by sea.

Getting near by Road  |  Map of Southwest Wilderness Tasmania

The nearest you can get by road is at either Strathgordon in the north, or Cockle Creek in the south.

To reach Strathgordon, head up the Derwent Valley and then follow the B61 past Mt Field National Park and on into the wilds. To reach Cockle Creek, head south from Hobart and take the A6 through the Huon Valley, past Geeveston and to the end of the road.

You will be able to take walks on the ends of the South Coast Track, but accommodation options are very limited.
