Tasman National Park

National Parks and Reserves

The Tasman National Park hugs the coast of the Tasman Peninsula in south eastern Tasmania. You can reach the Park from the Arthur Highway at Eaglehawk Neck, an hour south east of Hobart (80 kilometres/50 miles); and also from Fortescue Bay and Port Arthur, 90 minutes south east of Hobart (102 kilometres/63 miles).
The Tasman National Park features monumental rock formations. Here you can see rock stacks, arches, sea caves and 300-metre (986-foot) high cliffs created by 6,000 years of wave action on the peninsula’s sandstone, dolerite and granite.
You can visit Tasman Arch, the Blowhole, Devils Kitchen, Tessellated Pavement, Remarkable Cave and Waterfall Bay by car, but the best views are from the Park’s many bushwalks. Short walks include Waterfall Bay, Bivouac Bay, Cape Hauy and Cape Raoul.
You can go rock climbing, scuba diving and surfing here, and the Park is rich in wildlife. Whales, dolphins, penguins and seals can often be seen from the shore or a wildlife cruise. Watch for foraging possums and wallabies in the bush at dawn and dusk – you may even encounter an elusive Tasmanian devil.
Current park passes must be purchased for entry to Tasmania’s national parks.
