Remains of the church at Port Arthur Historic Site
The Tasman Peninsula region is regarded as an outstanding destination for walks, beaches, camp sites and fishing spots. 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.
The thought provoking ruins of Port Arthur and other relics of Tasmania’s convict past are nestled in between a stunning 250km coastal landscape.
A 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.
