tasmaniagramThe stunningly beautiful Mt Rugby in Bathurst Harbour by @nicholashoyle.
Deep in the south west wilderness of Tasmania lies the unspoilt natural beauty of Bathurst Harbour. The area is completely uninhabited with the only visitors researchers and adventurers. The complete lack of light pollution allows the sky to truly shine.
Evidence has been found for human habitation in the South West Wilderness area going back at least 25,000 years. The coastal area was shared by four Tasmanian Aboriginal tribes for at least the last 3,000 years.
Bathurst Harbour is an expansive, almost landlocked, shallow bay of relatively uniform depth ranging from 3 to 7 metres which provides safe anchorage from the Roaring Forties that buffet the western and southern coasts of Tasmania. The harbour is connected by the narrow 12 kilometre long Bathurst Channel to Port Davey, and then water flows into the Southern Ocean. Like most estuarine systems in southwest Tasmania, the water is stained a deep red-brown due to tannin leached from buttongrass and adjacent heathland.
