Eaglehawk Neck has an interesting colonial convict history which can make you appreciate the area even more. The natural beauty of this area is breathtaking in places. These two factors alone make a visit to the area a must do when in the area.

Such a nice place to stop and read about the historic site. A great place to take photos on a nice day.

Visited the old cabin and surrounds at the Eaglehawk site, including the Dog Line. Fantastic history of how the convicts were kept from escaping Port Arthur.

Stop take a stroll and absorb this natural beauty. I am a foodie and can say the food truck experience at these 'drive to' sites in Tasmania are part of the experience. The blowhole view is both beautiful and terrifying at the same time.

On the way to Port Arthur we stoped to have a look. this part of the coast is very different from cliffs to rocks and blow hole to surf beaches worth a look

Good place to stop at while heading to or from Port Arthur, beautiful scenery and the blow hole is an interesting spot.

Stopped by on my way down to port Arthur. It was worth a stop, not worth a special trip just hopped out of the car to read the sign.

The Blow Hole and Tasmanian Arch were on the way to Port Arthur and we did the tourist stop to have a look and stretch our legs. It's remarkable how the sea has carved it way into the rocks to form these attractions. I'm glad...More

The Neck is a very narrow piece of land connecting the Tasman Peninsular with the mainland. The bronze castings of the convict dog line is a great reminder that not everyone enjoyed their time here

At and around the Eaglehawk Neck just scenic views. Left hand side the amazing beach and right hand side the inlay. In from and in the back mountains. In addition to that we saw a larger number of dolphins
