South West Tasmania At over 600,000 hectares (1.48 million acres) the Southwest National Park is the largest in Tasmania and forms a significant portion of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. This is a vast, largely untracked wilderness, more likely to frequented by wombats and the endangered orange-bellied parrot, than humans. In one 23 day bushwalk through this rugged country this writer's party met only one other walker. Oh, there are no bridges, we swam across that river with our packs.
