Striking rock formations, an incredible variety of flowering plants and important Aboriginal heritage all make this park worth exploring. Gnarly rocks contrast with the blue ocean and waves pound the coast with intensity, sending up a salty sea spray that fills the air as you meander along the rugged coastline. Tucked around the small hamlets of Boat Harbour and Sisters Beach, Rocky Cape National Park is mainly a day use park and is best discovered on foot. Choose from short easy strolls or longer day walks into the less-travelled parts of this park, taking in scenic hills, tranquil bays and rocky headlands.
As you explore the Park, you will discover rock shelters and caves used by Aboriginal Tasmanians for numerous generations. You'll learn about Tasmanian Aboriginal life in North-West Tasmania as it was when these caves were first occupied many thousands of years ago. Please respect the wishes of the Aboriginal community and do not enter the cave.
