“More than just the historic site”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Having seen this place on so many TV shows I was underwhelmed seeing it in person but you still have to go and see it for yourself. The area as a whole is just stunning - the Tessellated Pavement, the Blowhole, Tasman's Arch, the Devil's Kitchen - all are must see sights. We visited everything on our way down to Port Arthur.

“Agree with Waddler”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

I agree that you might be a bit disappointed if you are stopping just for the "Historic Site". But in the broader context of the area, its interesting, Don't miss the tessellated pavement, Tasman Arch, Devils Kitchen and Blowhole, PARTICULARLY if you have high school aged kids to whom these rare geological formations will be useful (if not exactly appreciated!!!).

“Blow Hole will blow your mind”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

This is a must see. The Blow hole is terrific and free. Tasman's Arch is okay and you can skip the Devil's Kitchen. Scenery excellent. Go for a walk on the lovely beach and eat up at the old traditional and still family run Hotel Lufra.

“Come to Eaglehawk Neck, but not for the Historic Site”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

If you come for the Historic Site you might be disappointed. There is not much of it.

But do come for the beaches, coastal scenery, wierd natural pavement on the beach and the Tasman National Park. For Tasman cruises too.

“Great scenary”

On the way to Port Arthur, we stopped of at Eaglehawk to see the tessellated pavement, which was stunning & well worst the wonder. From here we continued to the gasman arch and the blowhole. All an easy drive between
