Blow hole and Tasman Arch
The Blow hole and Tasman Arch are just two of several unusual geological formations found in the Tasman National Park, a place of rugged beauty and natural diversity with some of the most stunning coastal scenery anywhere in Australia.
Formations like the Tasman Arch, the Blow hole, the Devils Kitchen, the Tessellated Pavement, Remarkable Cave and Waterfall Bay can all be reached by car, but by far the best views of the rugged coastline are from the park's many bushwalks.
Not surprisingly, the park offers some of the best coastal walks in the country. A stroll of just an hour or two will reveal sheer drops overlooking chasms and surging ocean, off-shore islands, white sandy beaches and a waterfall that tumbles into the sea. While at the southern end of the park are some of the highest and most spectacular sea cliffs in the world.
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 one and a half hours drive from Hobart.
