The Tasmania region

The Tasman Peninsula lies south and west of Forestier Peninsula, to which it connects via an isthmus called Eaglehawk Neck. This in turn is joined to the rest of Tasmania by an isthmus called East Bay Neck, near the town of Dunalley (about 60 kilometres or 37 miles by road from Hobart). Many smaller towns are also located on the Tasman Peninsula, the largest of which are Nubeena and Koonya. Smaller centres include Premaydena, Highcroft and Stormlea. The Conservation Park, located on the main highway at Taranna, is a popular local visitor attraction along with the Port Arthur Historic Site and a number of beaches.

The local government area is the Tasman Council and the major route to Hobart is the Arthur Highway. The population is around 2317 which rises to around 8000 in summer months, mainly due to Port Arthur. The area of the peninsula and of the Local Government Area is 660 square kilometres (250 sq mi), which amounts to a population density of 3.5 inhabitants per square kilometre (9.1 /sq mi).

The Tasman Peninsula region is regarded as an outstanding destination for walks, beaches, camp sites and fishing spots.

You will see some of the most stunning coastal scenery anywhere in Australia, right here. Not surprisingly the area offers 35 walks as well as opportunities to rock climb, abseil, sea kayak, dive the kelp forests and shipwrecks, go game fishing, horse riding, surfing, hang-gliding or 4WDriving. Or then again, simply sit back, relax and take in the stunning scenery.

Eaglehawk Neck is the gateway to the Tasman National Park – home to a wide range of land and marine animals, fascinating rock formations and some of the highest and most spectacular sea cliffs in Australia which can be experienced by land, sea or air.

By sea, the daily 3 hour eco-cruise hugs monumental cliff edges, explore hidden sea caves, often encountering whales, seals, albatross, dolphins and little penguins as they travel between Pirates Bay and Tasman Island. Whale sightings are almost daily from October to December.

On foot, encounter a myriad of natural wonders carved out by the sea. Start at Pirates Bay Lookout, then down to the Tessellated Pavement, Blowhole, Devils Kitchen and Tasman Arch.

From Devils Kitchen walk along the cliff tops to Waterfall Bay. 90 minutes of awe inspiring views of dramatic cliffs plummeting into the sea.

Other standout walks include the 90 minute return walk to Cape Raoul Lookout. This is a true wilderness walk through wet and dry sclerophyll forests until the track ends suddenly at the unfenced cliff edge overlooking Storm Bay to the Southern Mountains and Cape Raoul below you.

Crescent Bay – a sparkling bowl of wild sea cradled by vast sand dunes which no child, nor many adults can resist climbing up and sliding down. The 4 hour return walk starts at Remarkable Cave, near Port Arthur and traverses a gentle coastal heath. Take a side track to Mt Brown for 360 degree views including Tasman Island and Cape Pillar before dropping down into this secluded, magical bay.

These spectacular natural features are the backdrop to a fascinating story which unfolds along the Convict Trail. Look for the yellow roadside convict arrows as you travel to the World Heritage listed, Port Arthur Historic Site.

Recently added to the list is the Coal Mines Historic Site just past Saltwater River. The natural beauty of the site is incongruous with its former brutal purpose. This free-entry wheelchair access site once had 600 convicts working in underground tunnels, digging coal and pushing trolleys to the jetty for shipment. The underground cells bring a chill to your bones.

And throughout your stay don't forget to look up, often. White-breasted Sea eagles, Wedge-tail eagles and a variety of hawks and falcons soar overhead. Wallabies can often be surprised in the bush and echidnas are a common sight at road edges and in surrounding fields. Or, see the local residents up close at the Tasmania Devil Conservation Park in Taranna.

The thought provoking ruins of Port Arthur and other relics of Tasmania's convict past are nestled in between a stunning 250km coastal landscape that deserves wider exploration. To fully enjoy the region you should allow at least two nights. But don't take my word for it, come and look for yourself.

Hobart
