The Bluff is located on the south coast of the Southwest National Park, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, approximately 140 kilometres (87 mi) southwest of Hobart in Tasmania, and about 65 kilometres (40 mi) west and a little north of the South East Cape.[1]

The cape is bound to the south by the Southern Ocean and is located east of South West Cape. It is listed in climbing websites as being 322 metres (1,056 ft) high.[2]

Peter Dombrovskis had utilised a climb of the range to get photographs of the Cox Bight beach in 1987.[3][4]
