Southern Most Point of Australia


Driving to the southern most point of Tasmania we thought would be hard or not even possible but we did it. 

We drove to the very small town called Cockle Creek with a population of 3 people and we enjoyed our self. 

When we got to the spot the information stating we have reached the end of the road was quite interesting.

The Bay we were standing in was discovered in 1792 by a French Admiral Bruny D’Entrecasteaux after drifting of course because of a storm. Beyond this point is only the scientist stationed on Macquarie Island and a few lonely fishermen our in their boats. The next stop of course is Antarctic and its not too far away. Standing where we were, we are closer to the Antarctica that we were to Cairns.

Considering that is mind blowing.
