Blow hole and Tasman Arch
The Blow Hole and Tasman Arch are just two of many unusual geological formations found in the Tasman National Park, a place of rugged beauty with some of the most stunning coastal scenery found anywhere in Australia.
Not surprisingly, the park offers some of the best coastal walks in the country. A stroll of just an hour or two reveals sheer drops overlooking chasms and surging ocean, off-shore islands, white sandy beaches and a waterfall that tumbles into the sea.
At the southern end of the park are some of the highest and most spectacular sea cliffs in the world.
You can reach the formations like the Tasman Arch, the Blow Hole, the Devils Kitchen, the Tessellated Pavement, Remarkable Cave and Waterfall Bay by car, but by far the best views of the rugged coastline are from the park's many bushwalks.
The park is also the home to the famous Port Arthur Historic Site, Australia's most evocative and intact convict penal settlement.
The Tasman National Park is a 1.5-hr drive from Hobart.
