West Coast

By Discover Tasmania | On Tasmania's West Coast you'll find world famous wilderness rich in convict heritage, stunning national parks and historic mining towns.

Misty morning views over the Pieman River and the Arcadia II – the world’s oldest Huon pine passenger boat still in use – captured here in all her glory by @photobytj. The Arcadia II was built in Hobart and remained in service until her war effort in World War II. She served as a supply ship in the pacific war zone around New Guinea, before returning home to Tassie. These days, the stunning vessel takes visitors on enchanting cruises along the Pieman River through the heart of @TasmaniasNW's Tarkine wilderness.

Dwarfed by nature! After a very nice walk in the forest following an old railway and a suspension bridge you get to this incredible waterfall, one of the tallest in Tasmania (more than 100m), named after the old Montezuma Silver Mining Company. #360tasmania #montezumafalls

We are close to the weekend and it's time to think about where to explore! This is a shot of one of our favourite spots close to #strahan - Henty Dunes. It has been perfectly captured by our local photographer extraordinaire, Andrew Ward. The rugged west coast at its best! #discovertasmania

Gentle rays filter through the canopy onto vertical carpets at Nelson Falls, 60 kilometres east of Queenstown in @TasmaniasNorthWest, in this image from @dylanfoxphotography. Located deep within the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, the Nelson Falls Nature Trail is an easy boardwalk through ancient rainforest to a spectacular 30 metre cascade. Part of Tasmania's World Heritage Area, this national park is closely linked to the successful campaign to protect the beautiful Franklin River from flooding in the 1980s.

Hold on tight! - You're about to cross the Montezuma Falls suspension bridge with @dutchieslife. Montezuma Falls, near Rosebery on Tassie's West Coast, is the state's highest waterfall. This easy, three-hour return walk begins at Williamsford, two kilometres south of Rosebery, and takes you to the base of the 104 metre falls through rainforests of leatherwood, myrtle, sassafras and giant tree ferns. The track follows the historic route of the former North East Dundas Tramway right to the base of the waterfall - and a neck-craning view as reward for your efforts!
