Tasman Peninsula 3 Day Journeys

Day 1

Hobart Airport to Tasman Peninsula

On the way down the Tasman Peninsula, stop at the Dunalley Waterfront Café or the Bangor Oyster and Wine Shed for those who love their oysters fresh and served with cool climate sparkling.

At Eaglehawk Neck, be sure to take the turn off to enjoy views across Pirates Bay to the Tasman Peninsula; home to the highest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere. Follow the road down to view the amazing Tessellated Pavement, the free museum at the Officer”s Quarters (oldest timber military building in Australia) and the notorious Dog Line. Here, you”ll also find quirky Doo Town, Tasman Arch and Devil”s Kitchen. Take the 90 minute return walk to Waterfall Bay and return for the freshest fish and chips at the Doolishus Food Van or a wood fired pizza from Havenabite.

Continue on to the peninsula proper and enter the Historic Port Arthur Site to purchase your two day pass. Dare to join one of the after dark Ghost Tours to hear macabre tales that still echo in the corridors late at night. Overnight on the Tasman Peninsula.

Day 2

Tasman Peninsula

Up early to start a most unforgettable journey on-board Rob Pennicott”s Tasman Island Cruises. You may just get up close to whales, dolphins, seals and sea birds, or venture into a coastal sea cave. Be amazed at the highest sea cliffs at Cape Pillar and majestic Tasman Island, the silent custodian of the Tasman Peninsula and final navigation point for migrating Antarctic whales and the famous Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. On return to Port Arthur, complete your free second day visit and perhaps take an Isle of the Dead cruise or search official records for long lost family members. Overnight on the Tasman Penisula.

Day 3

Tasman Peninsula to Hobart

A day for a bit more fresh air and exhilaration – pay a visit to Remarkable Cave. Experience the power and might of the Southern Ocean here, and notice the map of Tasmania that is formed at the seaward entrance to the cave. If your fancy is wonderful walks, from here take the four-hour return walk to Crescent Beach, the Maingon Blowhole and Mount Brown.

If you fancy a wee dram, you cannot miss the unique whisky distillery created by William McHenry. William McHenry & Sons is located just past Port Arthur on the way to Nubeena, with the distillery perched high on the hillside.

Alternatively you may choose a leisurely drive along the touring loop road through the convict buildings at Koonya to the Old Trading Store at Premaydena where you can purchase some exquisite local goodies before heading to Saltwater and the Historic Coal Mines, a place of even more despicable happenings than Port Arthur. Continue on to Lime Bay and Sloping Main where you can stroll along the deserted beaches.
