Macquarie Harbour, Tasmania

Beautiful 285sq km expanse of water in a setting of mountains and thick forest. The only entrance is shallow Hell’s Gates, a narrow opening made treacherous by a sandbar and fierce rips. Cruises take in beauty spots, including Marble Cliffs, which rise white and vertical out of the Gordon River. The Knob’s towering 200m cliffs are a striking feature. The King River Gorge is imposing.
