Tasman National Park ~ Images of Australia
The Tasman Peninsula is one of Tasmania's most popular attraction, well known for spectacular coastal vistas, dramatic coastline, significant geological features and endemic flora and fauna. Located in Tasmania's south east, the peninsula includes Forestier Peninsula which is connected by the isthmus Eaglehawk Neck, Port Arthur Historic Site and the Tasman National Park. There are also a number of small towns, the largest being Nubeena and Koonya.

The Peninsula and surrounding region offers visitors some of Tasmania's most magnificent scenery, from white sandy beaches, sea caves, high fluted seacliffs and spectacular rock formations - to the smell of the ocean air, the drama of the ocean waves crashing against the cliff face, scenic vistas, and stunning cliff walks.

For those who are planning to visit the nearby Port Arthur Historic Site, or whose time is limited, you can take in some of the Tasman National Park most accessible attractions, or extend your stay to enjoy in full the great bush walks, scenic flights, boat tours, surfing or diving.

Here you can see 300 metre high cliffs that have been carved by 6,000 years of ocean waves against the peninsula's sandstone, dolerite and granite. Other key attractions include sea caves, geos1, stacks, arches and other collapse geological features.

Some of the main attractions include Tasman Arch, the Blowhole, the Devils Kitchen, the Tessellated Pavement, Remarkable Cave and Waterfall Bay. Of course some of the best views are through the many bush walks where you can peer over the edge and look down at the sheer drop into chasms and crashing waves, spy off-shore islands, enjoy white sandy beaches and a waterfall as it tumbles into the sea. For the more adventurous, there is abseiling or the challenge of rock climbing such features as the Candlestick and the Totem Pole.
