The Edge of the World

Brian Inder b 1930, a Tasmanian wrote a poem called 'The Edge of the World', the plaque of this poem is located on the North West Coast of Tasmania, Australia not that far from Arthur River which flows into the Great Southern Ocean.
Wonderful place to visit to see the logs which come down the river then into the sea and back up on the small beaches.  The sea roars and is the longest uninterrupted expanse of ocean on the globe. From Argentina the currents sweep unimpeded more than halfway around the planet until they hit this point.

For me to visit the North West Coast of this area, Arthur River it would be about 4 hours away.

    1. Lovely place and not much doing there J0-Anne, rather quiet except for the sea.

  3. great photos as usual and it makes me wonder how long those trees took to get to that stage of decomposition. did they grow nearby? they look almost petrified. beautiful words in the poem too. the oceans are indeed vast and awesome. hope you are well dear M. :)

    1. Thanks. I reckon those trees are old but wouldn't know how old. They fall down the hill or mountain into the river and then flow out to the sea.
