Description

The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is a World Heritage Site in Tasmania, Australia.

The area is one of the largest conservation areas in Australia, covering 15,800 km², or almost 20% of Tasmania after extensions in 1989 and 2013. It constitutes one of the last expanses of temperate wilderness in the world, and includes the South West Wilderness.

The Tasmanian Wilderness, a network of parks and reserves with steep gorges, underwent severe glaciation. Human remains dating back more than 20,000 years have been found in limestone caves in the area.

The following national parks and reserves make up the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area:

Coordinates: 41°34′59″S 145°25′01″E / 41.583°S 145.417°E / -41.583; 145.417
