Cape Hauy is one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks. The 60 Great Short Walks offer the best of Tasmania's day walking opportunities.
4 hours return, 9.4km return. Grade 3.
A stunning there and back walk to some awe-inspiring cliffs. The track, part of the Three Capes Track, first undulates through woodlands and heath containing an abundance of wildflowers. It then drops down a steep set of mostly stone steps, before ascending again towards the cape. Cape Hauy juts out into the restless ocean, with views on both sides. The cape itself has spectacular dolerite columns that plunge directly into the sea. Keep an eye out for seabirds, eagles and even passing whales: camera and binoculars recommended.
