Geological Panoramas Of The Peninsula


Tasmania is renowned for wild and rugged landscapes and dramatic coastal scenery. Uncover breathtaking views and convict history on this Tasman Peninsula and Eaglehawk Neck tour. First stop is Eaglehawk Neck to view a unique rock formation, tessellated pavement. This area is also a historically significant. See the Officer’s Quarters and ‘The Dog Line’ where savage dogs once guarded the isthmus to prevent convicts escaping from Port Arthur. Depending on conditions, next stop is Devil’s Kitchen or Tasman Arch, both marvels of nature where over the years, softer layers of rock has been eroded by the waves, leaving the stronger top layers withstanding. Continue on to the dramatic Blow Hole. The final stop is Pirates Bay Lookout for stunning views over the beautiful white sand beach, blue water and rugged rocky cliffs.
