About the region

Tasman National Park is a wild, yet accessible park of tall forests and a truly spectacular coastline. Waters from the Southern Ocean collide with the towering sea cliffs of the Tasman Peninsula, creating spectacular rock formations, including caves and arches. The coastal vegetation grows precariously close to the edges of the cliffs, creating a blanket of green that contrasts with the surging surf below. Australia’s highest sea cliffs have walkers on the award-winning, multi-day Three Capes Track in awe. Day walkers can also discover a slice of this beauty high atop the cliffs on shorter coastal walks at Cape Hauy, Cape Raoul and the world-famous big wave mecca, Shipsterns Bluff.

Getting there

B37 from Port Arthur. Drive 8km west of Port Arthur, then turn left at the sign to Highcroft and Stormlea, located at Parsons Bay creek. (If travelling from Nubeena, turn right into this road 3km south of Nubeena.)

Tips

No facilities at car park or on track. Public toilets and drinking water are available at Port Arthur or Nubeena.

Some rough uphill sections; moderate degree of fitness required.
