Short Walks

Remarkable Cave & Lookout (30 min return) – This short walk starts at the end of Safety Cove Road.  The lookout provides great views down the coast to Cape Roaul.   A track leads down stairs to a view of the cave entrance.

 

Garden Point (2-3 hours return) – A lovely family walk that starts at the northerly end of Carnarvon Bay about 80 meters from the tree line.  The walk follows the coast to the Historic Site (20 minutes), past the jetty and continues around to Stewarts Bay and onto Garden Point.

 

Officers Mess & Dog Line – Eaglehawk Neck (1 hour)
The Officers Mess was the original quarters for guards located on the “neck” to prevent convicts from escaping from the Peninsula.  A line of ferocious dogs were located across this narrow neck of land and on pontoons located in Eaglehawk Bay making escape almost impossible.

 

Tessellated Pavement (30 min return) – A rare geological formation found on ocean shores where the rock has fractured into polygonal blocks.

 

Blow Hole, Tasman Arch, Devil’s Kitchen & Patersons Arch coastal walks        (1 – 2 hours return) – The Blow Hole is located at the end of the Blow Hole road and the turn off to Tasman Arch is at Doo Town just before the Blow Hole.  The Arch ceiling is 52.7 m above sea level.  Patersons Arch is an impressive rock feature demonstrating the power of the sea.  From Patersons Arch there is a pathway to Waterfall Bay Lookout.

 

Cape Raoul Lookout (1 hour return)  – Walk starts at the end of Stormlea Road, off Nubeena Road.  The walk to the lookout is easy and the view from the 400 metre high sea cliffs takes in Bruny Island and the mountains of the South West.  The walk continues to the end of Cape Raoul (5 hours return) where the sheer 400 metre dolerite cliffs plunge to the ocean and the views are spectacular.
