Hells Gate Tasmania

Gordon River, Tasmania

Hells Gates is the name of the mouth of Macquarie Harbour on the West Coast of Tasmania. It is a shallow and dangerous channel entrance to the harbour.

The name of the channel relates to the original convicts' claim that it was their point of 'entrance to Hell', their Hell being the Macquarie Harbour Penal Station on Sarah Island and the outlying surrounds of the harbour.
