The Tasmanian Wilderness is a term that is used for a range of areas in Tasmania, Australia.
The World Heritage Areas in South West, Western and Central are the most well known. However, there are also other areas in Tasmania that have the elements of being known as wilderness areas, the Tarkine and the Cradle mountain wilderness. There is also an organisation that has been known as the Tasmanian Wilderness Society.
The World Heritage Area is one of the largest conservation areas in Australia, covering 13,800 km², or almost 20% of Tasmania. The area constitutes one of the last expanses of temperate wilderness in the world, including the renowned South West Wilderness.
Remains found in limestone caves attest to the human occupation of the area for well over 20,000 years.
The following National Parks and reserves make up the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area:
