A joyful meditation on the end of the world, taking refuge in Tasmania’s secluded and stunning environments, and drinking good whisky along the journey. Emerging at South Cape Bay, one of the most southern points in the inhabited world, take a moment to gaze out at the great nothingness before you. Perhaps this is where humanity ends and nature takes over.
Suggested walking location
Cockle Creek to South Cape Bay
Experience a taste of the wild south on this delightful extended walk. Leave from the southern-most road in Australia and walk through woodland and open bush till you reach the cliff above South Cape Bay. It’s a rare day when the wind isn’t howling and the surf roaring at this breath-taking place. Grade 3: Some bushwalking experience recommended. Tracks may have short steep hill sections, a rough surface and many steps. Click here for more information.

Meet the musician
Emily Sheppard explores the extremities of violin and viola playing. Written in the depths of caves, blackened forests and mountain summits, her music evokes landscapes, imagined and real. A haunting and emotive deep-listening experience.
