The Tasman Peninsula has got to be Australia’s most stunning coastline! Fortunately for us, much of it is directly accessible by foot in the form of the Three Capes Track.
With deluxe cabins that mark the end of each day’s walk, along with the many kilometres of boardwalk and well constructed trail it’s on the soft side of hiking, but none of that detracts from the incredible beauty of the ~300m coastline cliffs the track follows wherever it can. In fact, it kind of adds to it because your focus and energy is on what’s around you, not each and every footstep. In our case for example, it meant we headed out to Cape Pillar twice – once on the second afternoon, then again on the third morning! How hard you push yourself is up to you. Whatever you do though, be sure to swim at Fortesque Bay at the end of the hike!
At $495 per person the Three Capes Track isn’t cheap, but that does include the boat ride from Port Arthur to Denman’s Cove, three nights accommodation and the shuttle bus back to Port Arthur. It is absolutely non stop spectacular, and definitely a bucket list Tasmanian experience.
