Smithton on the far north-west coast of Tasmania, is the last stop before Arthur River – and the beginning of the Tarkine wilderness.  It lies on the Bass Highway, 85 km north-west of Burnie.  Surrounded by lush green fields fed by the rains of the Roaring Forties, Smithton has plenty of in-town and nearby attractions. Further west of Smithton at Marrawah, thrill-seeking surfers take on the seriously dangerous swells of the wild Southern Ocean and Tasmanian devils can be seen in the wild on a unique overnight stay.  At Cape Grim on Tasmania’s north-western tip you can breathe the cleanest air in the world on a spectacular guided coastal walk and tour Tasmania’s largest wind farm harnessing the powerful winds of the Roaring Forties.
