This one-day walk takes in part of the famous South Coast Track, beginning at the small town of Cockle Creek. Visitors observe native plants and birds as they cross coastal heathland, enjoy ocean views and gaze out over the expanse of the Southern Ocean imagining the distance between themselves and the nearest landmass of Antarctica.

Great walk. Amazing view at the bottom of Australia

An amazing walk. Not too challenging but scenic and the view at the end of Australia is breathtaking. It's a bit windy and cold but so worth the walk.

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk from Cockle Creek to South Cape Bay. While the last 15 kms driving was rough (we hear it has been graded recently) the 1-2 hour walk to the Cape was easy going and excellently maintained. We enjoyed being able to walk at a good pace and appreciated the efforts to provide boarded walkways over swampy... More

It's Worth a 5k Walk from "Cockle Creek" to the Far South Coast of Tasmania, at South Cape Bay!. Take full Advantage of Camping at Cockle Creek, amongst the Dunes and Vastly Beautiful Beach, as you prepare for your Hike to the Cape!.

My partner, mother and I decided to take the drive down to cockle Creek to do this walk, we should have had hiking boots on as there were a lot of muddy areas on the track that were unavoidable however once we got to the end we were not disappointed, the view was fantastic, it says 4.5 hour return however...

History on whaling and saw log milling, the environment and the hard work that our early settlers endured. Very pretty place to relax in and appreciate. The road is terrible but worth the careful driving to dee this place

I went with a group of 4 friends and while we were fit, we were not experienced in hiking. The 4 hours return turns into much longer if you would like to that the time to look at the multitude of plants, aussie critters, and sceneries along the way as we did. The beach at end paid off though, such... More

This is the only place you can walk to the very bottom of Australia - next stop Antarctica! The return walk is about 15kms and despite what the signs say it takes a good 5 hours not 4 but it is worth it. The walk is not hard for experienced walkers but if it has rained (and it had!) unless... More

There are dozens of short walks within in the southwest national park. There are remote beaches, great sand dunes incredible surf waves not sure if I would swim there I would check that out. I would not try it but worth the look. Take warm clothes as weather can change quickly.

I'm not a fast walker and I left about 10 am from cockle creek, the track is slightly inclined in places, encounter cobbled ground, boardwalk for large section, your feet can get muddy so wear good quality walking shoes, register your trip intention 5 mins from car park. Allow time to take in the view when you arrive at the... More
