Maria Is­land > Tas­man Penin­sula

On the Road Tasmania - - News -

Af­ter a short ferry ride back to Tri­abunna, set off to­wards Ea­gle­hawk Neck, the gate­way to many at­trac­tions of the Tas­man Penin­sula. A rat­tling gravel road in­side the

Tas­man Na­tional Park leads to Fortes­cue Bay, a unique con­cave beach book­ended by forested head­lands.

Set up camp here while you frolic in the bay’s translu­cent wa­ters, dive among gi­ant kelp forests or hike out to the breath­tak­ing sea cliffs at Cape Hauy. Wildlife parks (in­clud­ing the pop­u­lar Tas­ma­nian Devil Un­zoo, the first of its kind in the world), berry farms, blow­holes and Port Arthur, are all close by (see our Culi­nary and Cultural Cap­i­tal route for de­tails).
