UNESCO World Heritage Wilderness

The Tasmanian wilderness is one of the largest conservation reserves in Australia with approximately 1.6 million hectares of temperate wilderness protected. With hundreds of archaeological sites, a vast diversity of flora and home to several animals either extinct or threatened on mainland Australia, it made the World Heritage List 1982.

Included in the Tasmanian World Heritage Area is the iconic Southwest National Park which encapsulates Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour themselves part of the Port Davey Marine Reserve.

At Port Davey, sharp rocky ridges rise up from the southern ocean and present a stark contrast to the bright green ranges whilst the underwater landscape, influenced by tannin-rich freshwater that drain into the harbour from four major rivers, is most unusual.

The insularity of the isle state of Tasmania and of the Tasmanian Wilderness in particular, has contributed to its uniqueness.
