Gardiner Point


Gardiner Point is Tasmania’s official 'edge of the world': the sea here stretches uninterrupted all the way to Argentina, 15,000km away over the wild seas. There’s a plaque at the point and the stunningly jagged coastline is smothered in logs washed in by the Southern Ocean. It's a great place to take those leaning-into-the-wind, world’s-end photos.

It's signposted off the main road on the southern side of Arthur River.
