Pieman Heads and Pieman River gained its name from the notorious convict Alexander 'The Pieman' Pearce who was responsible for one of the few recorded instances of cannibalism in Australia. There is a small shack community near the mouth of the Pieman River. ????? Piemen Heads marks the southern extremity of the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area. It is a hotspot for fishers, surfers, campers, horse riders and recrea?tional vehicle enthusiasts, many of whom regard it as their second home. The area may be remote but to the 25 or so permanent residents, shack owners, campers and day trippers, the journey to this isolated wilderness is well worth it.?
