Situated in the lower reaches of Tasmania is Eaglehawk Neck. A thin strip of coast, less than 100 metres wide, that connects the southern island to the mainland. It was a crucial point of the security of the Port Arthur Historic Site where a line of fierce dogs were chained across The Neck to prevent convicts from escaping Port Arthur.
This area of coastline is exposed to the elements, which over time have formed stunning phenomena of the tessellated pavements.
Weathering and erosion have also played a part in the creation of the spectacular Tasman Arch. Over thousands of years, the pounding of the waves has weathered the rock to create this beautiful natural arch.
If stunning coastal scenery is your thing, then the Cape Raoul walking track is a must. The track takes you through open forest and continues onto the spectacular cliffs of the cape. The volcanic dolerite columns drop straight to the ocean below, what a sight!
