Hastings Cave is a magical place to explore being the largest southern cave in Australia and the most well preserved. I highly recommend booking a tour as it is popular every weekend.

Stunning outdoor swimming pool fed by naturally warm springwater with a visitors centre (ice-cream, coffee and takeaway food) in the middle of the Tasmanian rainforest. BBQ facilities under a stone walled shelter. Make the day of it and take a tour of Hastings Caves as well, but the pool is cheap…

“The tiny settlement of Cockle Creek at the southern end of Australia is the gateway to the Southwest National Park, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The area is known for its scenic beauty of deserted white beaches, turquoise waters of Recherche Bay and a variety of short and multi-day bushwalks including the end of the famous 82 km South Coast Track. Historically aborigines valued the region for the seals, shellfish and bush hunting it provided during the warmer months, with evidence of many shell middens in the area. French explorer, Bruni D'Entrecasteaux sailed his ship, the Recherche into the bay in 1792, subsequently naming the bay. The region provided an important port of call for ships transporting convicts to the Sarah Island Penal Colony in Macquarie Harbour on the West coast of Tasmania from 1822 to 1834, when sealers, whalers and loggers visited the area and settled to extract Huon pine. At its height the settlement numbered more than 2000 people. Today it is quite literally the ‘End of the Road’ and is signposted such. From the sign there is a leisurely 15 minute walk along the beach (tide permitting) or the main path to the bronze whale sculpture where the interpretive signs guide you through the history of the area and offer a geographical view as to where you are. ‘Closer to Antarctica than Cairns.’ If you plan to walk the final section of the South Coast Wilderness Track from Cockle Creek to South Cape Bay/South East Cape and back, the sign says ‘4hr return’ but this would be a fast pace and we would allow a minimum of 4.5-5hrs for the walk there, a short lunch stop and return to Cockle Creek. ”
