Welcome to The Southeast

As you head south, the fruity hillsides of the Huon Valley give way to the sparkling inlets of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, with Bruny Island afloat just offshore. Hartz Mountains National Park rises a short way inland, providing a grandstand view into the depths of Tasmania's southwest wilderness, and, further south, the epic South Coast Track kicks off at magnificent Recherche Bay.

The plethora of French names here reflects the fact that French explorers Bruni d’Entrecasteaux and Nicolas Baudin charted much of the region’s coastline in the 1790s and early 1800s.
