“The Edge of the World”
One of the more isolated stops we visited as part of our Tarkine Drive/Arthur River exploration, the reason this place is called “The Edge of the World” is because the battered coastline and isolated river mouth lie 15,000km from the next land mass in Patagonia on the south coast of America. We experienced the “Roaring Forties”, the swells of the Southern Ocean and the resulting waves which pound the rugged rocks. Here tree trunks have been heaved ashore as if they were twigs. Miles of beaches north and south of Arthur River are littered with these ancient logs.
