Tasmania’s Western Wilds

Introducing Tasmania’s Western Wilds: a multi-day journey into the intriguing wilderness stories of western Tasmania.

The stories of the western wilderness areas are both about the physical beauty of the landscapes, and the number of extraordinary human stories within the area. These stories stem from the regions history and culture, pioneering courage and visions that to this day live on in the landscapes, towns and places within the Western Wilds.
