Literally! Feels so desolate here. WILD sea with HUGE crashing waves. No place for boats or swimming. However a place were plenty of driftwood stockpiles. Definitely a must see destination traveling around Tasmania.

Wild surf in very windy conditions really felt like we were on The Edge of the World! Beautiful coastline and Arthur River RedBoat Cruise is a must..just at the bridge

This is a sight not to be missed. It is one of the stopping points on the route of the Tarkine Drive (self drive tour). A spectacular view point of the rocks and shore complete with a wonderful poem on a plaque.

Had never heard of this place until our Arthur River Cruise personnel told us about it. It is stunning and worth the drive which is 5 mins from AR. Some spectacular scenery. Do go.

Nice look out over the coast line and small town of Arthur River. Was very windy but worth the stop.
