Covering an area of around 1.6 million hectares, the Tasmanian Wilderness was proclaimed as a World Heritage listed region in 1982 and extended in area four times, the last being in 2013. The region generally covers from the Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair National Park in the north right down to the Southwest National Park and the southern tip of Tasmania.
For many the first entry to the region is via Cradle Mountain or via Queenstown and the West Coast Wilderness Railway to Strahan.
