This walk is closed on Tuesdays due to helicopters flying in equipment for the track Maintainence. If you've done the three capes walk and are concerned about doing this walk. This review is for you. It took me 6 hours plus to walk this track. I have arthritis in my feet and ankles. (But recently completed the three capes walk... More

2 hours drive from Hobart. Read here that it is hard to get there. When we put Cape Raoul we arrived exactly where we wanted to. There is an old-fashioned “toilet” just before the walk. There are NO fresh water sources around, so we definitely recommend taking lots of water. Quite a bit of the walk is not in a... More

This is a must do hike in Tassie. We clocked it at 8 k each way and for 3 x 65+ oldies it was difficult in parts (down and back up the mountain) but we took it easy and the vistas were breathtaking. The actual pinnacles at the end of the Cape (incl seals) just blew us all away. If... More

I did this as part of the three capes. It was breathtaking - the walk and the view. Rugged coastline, savage waters and beautiful wildlife make for a great hike

The highlight of the walk is the cape itself, but there are some views on the way and the vegetation is always changing. The cape is spectacular - we had seen it from a distance while on the Three Capes Track and it was great to complete the trio. Like Cape Pillar, there is a (noisy) seal colony at the... More

The best place we visited on the Tasman Peninsula! Really happy we trekked up the large hill. The views were more than worth it, and the trip up was interesting as well. We didn't do the full cape hike as we didn't have time, but plan to on our next visit. This would be our number 1 pick for a... More

We took the drive and walk down to Cape Raoul in the Port Arthur area about a month ago and it has to be one of the most amazing coastal views we have seen in a long time, possibly the best in Australia and Tasmania. Easy walking trails for us, took about 5 hours overall and the coastal cliffs were... More

We planned to do this walk but the access road was very primitive and not appropriate for a rental vehicle. We may have missed out on a better trail head but directions from the locals we talked with suggest a four wheel drive is really needed. If you plan to do this hike more detailed advanced planning is needed than... More

Our trip took us from close to Port Atrhur up around the coast to Eagleneck. The scenary is just breathtaking , cliffs rising straight out of the ocean for hundreds of metres. The highest cliffs in Tasmania. You get to sea Seals, sea eagles albatrosses and all manner of marine life, not to mention dolphins playing around the fast boats.... More

Walked as part of Three Capes Walk. Amazing scenic views, good place to take lunch. Not to be rushed as many steps up and down but worth the journey.
