Waterfall Bay Walk is a 4.5km, grade 2 return hike, located in Tasman National Park, Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

Vantage points that show cliffs plummeting into the sea and swirling ocean waters make this an exciting coastal walk within the Tasman National Park.

Highlights

The stunning coastline of this region includes some of the highest sea cliffs in Australia. Waterfall Bay offers a spectacular view across the cliff-lined bay to a waterfall which, after rain, plummets straight into the sea.

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

From Eaglehawk Neck, on the Tasman Peninsula, take road C338 to its end at the Devils Kitchen.

Tips

Toilets are located 2km away at the Blowhole. Supervise children, stay within barriers, hazardous cliffs. No pets, firearms or bicycles.
