The west coast of Tasmania is a wilderness that is protected as much as it can be in this modern age--I was disappointed to see a cat travelling up the track near Hells Gate and someone's rubbish thrown down and left there. Tourism is a wonderful thing and I hope that visitors respect this amazing wilderness.The sand dunes are amazing,Hells Gate has only a 120 metre entry into Macquarie Harbour and to pilot any kind of vessel through is a feat.
On stormy days it is near impossible.

Address: Tasmanias West Coast.
Directions: Follow the road map to Strahan,West Coast of Tasmania.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
