Waterfall Bay Tasman Peninsula Walk Map

Interactive Tasmania Map   |  Waterfall Bay Tasman Peninsula Walk Map

Our Waterfall Bay Tasman Peninsula Walk Map is designed to be used with the Waterfall Bay Walk Tasman Peninsula Directions.

The coastline of the Tasman Peninsula between Eaglehawk Neck and Tasman Island is a magical place in which to walk, and one that offers great views and vistas in return for relatively little effort.

The map should be used in conjunction with our directions for the Waterfall Bay Walk Tasman Peninsula that will show you how to make this most interesting cliff top walk.

The views are spectacular and this walk is one where the coach groups do not go.

Overview  |  Waterfall Bay Tasman Peninsula Walk Map
While there are a lot of coastal clifftop walks in the world, this is  one of the most spectacular I have ever seen.

Yes, that includes Maui, the Oregon Coast and Cornwall, England.  It is unusual because you can get up close and personal with lookout points that are 300 metres (1,000 feet) above the water.

You look straight down, and the cliffs drop right into the Tasman Sea. The more popular places nearby are the Blowhole, Tasman Arch and the Devils Kitchen. I am not suggesting that you do not see these also – just that you might like to spend some extra time to discover something different.

It is deep here – the water goes down almost another 300 metres (984 feet!). In some places you can see through cracks in the path, right down to water level. By driving up a backroad from Eaglehawk Neck, you can visit any part of the clifftop coast that is only seen by those in the know.

HIstory  |  Waterfall Bay Tasman Peninsula Walk Map
The Tasman Peninsula was a natural prison because it was hard to escape across the narrow necks of land separating it from the Tasmanian Mainland.

That is why the Port Arthur Convict Site was established there. When you see the cliffs and the ocean on the east side of the Tasman Peninsula, you will appreciate why escape by way of the Tasman Sea was not an option.

The walk takes you around Waterfall Bay and then up onto Tatnell’s Hill. Some of the most incredible views of the coast are from this area and the 360 degree view over the Tasman Peninsula and the Tasman Sea from the top of the hill are truly spectacular.

All this with the possibility of not seeing another person during the walk.

Hotels near Port Arthur  |  Waterfall Bay Tasman Peninsula Walk Map
One of my favourite hotels in Tasmania has always been Lufra Hotel at Eaglehawk Neck. My parents used to take us on an outing there as kids back in the 1960’s. The view from the dining room is great, it is only about an hour drive from Hobart, and the beach is first rate. Make sure you take the walk down on to the Tesselated Pavement that starts just below the hotel.
