Remarkable Cave is a walk in Tasman National Park.
15 minutes return. Grade 3.
Enjoy the vista from Maignon Bay Lookout of the rugged southern coastline before decending the steps to the spectacular Remarkable Cave.
From the car park it's a short, accessible walk to the large viewing platform where you willl find exceptional views of Penguin Rocks and the bay. Wild waves pound away at the coastal rock below to create this dramatic coastline. From the central carpark, descend the 115 steps to view the aptly named Remarkable Cave. You'll be surrounded by steep, ancient sandstone cliffs and view the cave from the custom-designed platform at the base.
The tunnel-shaped cave was formed through years of torment from crashing waves, eventually causing a wall of the sandstone cave to collapse and create the tunnel that stands today. Some of the collapsed rock from the cave can still be seen at the base of the cliffs. At certain times of year, the waves rush through the tunnel creating a thrilling spectacle for those lucky enough to witness it. Be prepared to get a little wet!
