Welcome to The Southwest

Just one road enters the 6000-plus-sq-km Southwest National Park, the largest national park in Tasmania and part of the Unesco-listed Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, and this only goes as far as the hydroelectric station on the Gordon Dam. Otherwise, all access is by light plane to the gravel airstrip at Melaleuca, by sailing boat around the tempestuous coastline, or on foot.
