cockle creek and recherche bay

Bordering on the edge of the South-West Wilderness World Heritage Area, the drive is definitely worth it! An area rich in cultural and early-settler history, there's plenty to take in. A stroll along the beach at Recherche Bay provides you with the peace, quiet and beauty of this remote place. If you're feeling brave - jump into the icy waters of one of Tassie's southernmost areas.

Dogs are permitted on the beaches but not within the World Heritage Areas. Explore the Huon Valley encourages dog owners to keep the area free of droppings and ask that you please keep dogs on lead if they pose a threat to native wildlife.
