A Comprehensive Guide to Bushwalking in Tasmania
Bushwalk Tasman Peninsula
Tasman Peninsula, South East
Coast Tasmania Australia
The stunning coastline of this region includes some of the
highest sea cliffs in Australia. Waterfall Bay offers a spectacular
view across the cliff lined bay to a waterfall which, after rain,
plummets straight into the sea.
Waterfall Bay bushwalk is close to the location
of Eaglehawk Neck, a small town that sits on the very narrow
isthmus that separates Tasman and Forestier peninsulas. In convict
times it was blockaded by police, soldiers and a line of chained
savage dogs to prevent escape from the Port Arthur penal settlement.
It is now known as a fishing spot, with a tuna-fishing fleet operating from Pirates Bay.
