Tasmania’s wild West Coast has been chosen as the preferred location for our next iconic walk which will showcase all this unique region has to offer, as well as further enhancing our reputation as one of the best eco-tourism destinations in the world.

Following a public submissions process, the West Coast Tourism Association’s ‘The Philosopher’s Tale’ best illustrates the preferred location for the next iconic walk showcasing the rugged and spectacular Tyndall Ranges, with its unique geology and mineralisation, which lie between Queenstown and Tullah.
