The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is a World Heritage Site in Tasmania, Australia.
The area is one of the largest conservation areas in Australia, covering 15,800 km², or almost 20% of Tasmania after extensions in 1989 and 2013. It constitutes one of the last expanses of temperate wilderness in the world, and includes the South West Wilderness.
The Tasmanian Wilderness, a network of parks and reserves with steep gorges, underwent severe glaciation. Human remains dating back more than 20,000 years have been found in limestone caves in the area.
In 2014 a propposed logging of trees in the protected area lead to a discussion in the UN cultural organisation meeting.Which was quickly rejected by UNESCO.
