A lesser known of Tasmania's National Parks, but a great place to spend a couple of relaxing days at anytime of year. The beach has that kind of sand that 'squeaks' when you walk on it and the water is exceptionally clear. I reckon it...More

Doing the Cape Hauy walk from Fortescue Bay was one of the highlights of our trip. The walk is reasonably demanding, especially with a toddler in carrier in your back. Plan around taking the full 4 hours for the round trip, that way you won't...More

A 20 minute drive from Port Arthur, commencing at pretty Fortescue Bay, this is an excellent 4-5 hour hike (12 km) alternating up and down with stunning coastal seascapes and pillars. Numerous photographic vantage points along the way. We saw pademelons and plenty of bird...More

Beautiful drive ( about 14km) to the Bouviac Bay beach and the camp ground. Stunning natural scenery and forest. Crystal clear waters and pristine beaches. Well worth the drive.

After 4 days trekking the Three Capes trail it was magic coming across this pristine white bay beach. The campground that borders it looked great too.

You drive down a 14 km dirt road to access Fortescue Bay and it is pristine and unspoiled with Eucalyptus forests all around and a wide beach with trails at each end. Rustic National Park camping.

I cannot answer for the other walks as I only had time for one myself and ended up doing the Cape Hauy walk. I was a bit taken aback by the sheer number of steps as I've done a few walks in my time and never experienced... More
