Getting Here

Matt Glastonbury

Discover nowhere

On our island, at the bottom of the world, lies a westward road. At the end of an imposing mountain landscape, this road descends into a valley. In this valley lies our town, our people. Queenstown: a place within a wilderness, a wilderness within its people.

The remote West Coast of Tasmania is reached by a stunning wilderness drive via the Lyell or Murchison Highways. Allow at least 4 hours to drive to the region from Launceston or Hobart.

Want to view us from above? Visit Par Avion to plan your flight from Hobart to Strahan.

For stories, stops and things to do on your westward journey, visit Western Wilds.
