The starting point for the Huay Cape Track which is part of the Three Cape Track in the Tasman Peninsula. To find the road (C344) which leads to the camp site in the Tasman National Park, take a left turn off the Arthur Highway (A9)...More
Quite a few steps down to the Remarkable Cave. I do not know why visitors have to make their mark by stacking stones everywhere. Really! Can't you just come and enjoy and marvel and leave without having to leave your sign.

This is a definite must see if you are in the area visiting Port Arthur. The blowhole, Tasman Arch & Devil’s Kitchen are all awesome. The look out provides the most beautiful view of the coast line and back drop for a photo. The food...More

No, we didn't in April this year. We thought the Bicheno Blowhole was a bit more impressive - but it all depends on the tides when you are there. There is quite a lot to see and do around the area as well. On the Peninsula we stopped at the Tasman National Park Lookout overlooking Pirates Bay with spectacular views.
Eaglehawk Neck has lots of things to see - the Tessellated Pavements which is an interesting rock formation on the beach where the rocks form in either rising bread loaf shapes or plate formations. It was very interesting. The lichen on the rocks here was also amazing with yellows and reds again.
Just along the road was the Officer’s Quarters which has been restored as a free museum interpreting the history and life at Eaglehawk Neck. This is extremely well done as they have peeled back the lawyers of the walls and ceiling to show each era. Built in 1832, it’s reputed to be the oldest wooden military building remaining in Australia. This is also where the notorious dog line was set to stop convicts escaping the peninsula.
Pirates Bay where we looked at The Blowhole, Fossil Bay Lookout, Tasman’s Arch (impressive) and Devil’s Kitchen – these were all very interesting and stunning rock formations on the coast line. Stopping at Doo-Lishus Seafood was also worthwhile.
Drive onto Maingon Bay Lookout which is further along the peninsula. It is spectacular coastline and the photos will not pick up its beauty. Do the short walk to Remarkable Cave, which is actually quite a steep descent into the base of the cave. This is a cave that leads out to the sea and you can stand and watch the cave fill up with water with the waves. There were pictures of people swimming here in the past.
If you need accommodation, would highly recommend a Waterview Cabin at Big4 Port Arthur Holiday Park. Cost us $259.50 a night in April for 3 people. It was lovely and very well appointed. We had pademelons and wallabies wandering around outside and birds coming to share afternoon tea.

Shipsterns bluff great walk depending on your fitness level , breathtaking views give yourself the whole day , we started early and got back mid afternoon don't forget to sign the book at the start of the trek to let the national parks no that you have entered the park also let other people no what you are doing so if you don't arrive back at camp they can start searching , very isolated we found there was no phone reception , you need to be reasonably fit , take your time and take plenty of photos , it is a very magical place enjoy
