Tierra del Fuego is the name for the region in the very southern part of South America, where the 'southern cone' breaks up into a mess of islands and channels. In 1960, a national park was established called the Tierra del Fuego National Park. It is the most southerly national park in Argentina. It makes a nice place to visit before or after a trip to Antarctica, as it is just outside the town of Ushuaia; it will be your last chance to see flowers, insects and songbirds!
One of the more obvious and talked about things you'll see around the park are the lumps on trees; these are 'Darwin's Fungus'.
The 'Thorn-tailed Rayadtio' is a common bird of the southern forests and shrublands of southern South America.
