Parks & Nature
An easy 5 minute walk down to the shore, the rock formation is definitely worth a look. There is a viewing platform half way down the walk and easy access down to the pavement itself. At low tide the pavement is exposed and can be fully explored across the surface.

Pirates Bay Beach is perfect for the avid surfer. It is on an isthmus of land that seems to attract nice sandbars along its extensive curve, has good bit of swell and offers long rides when it is triangulating from out the back to the beach. Eaglehawk reef is at the north end of Pirates Bay and is a very sucky lefthander that requires NE swell and W-NW winds to create a barrel-fest for experts only.

1 - 1.5 hour walk along this stunning coastline of this region includes some of the highest sea cliffs in Australia. Waterfall Bay offers a spectacular view across the cliff-lined bay to a waterfall which, after rain, plummets straight into the sea.

A popular spot for surfers looking for big waves which roll in off the shoreline. A great place to explore, or just take in the stunning views.

A pretty serious 5 hour return hike, but once you get there, it's definitely worth it. There are stunning coastal seascapes that include rock platforms, towering cliffs and columns, off-shore islands and swirling seas. Take your lunch, spend some time and gaze in awe at majestic views.

A good one for experienced hikers. Takes about 4 hours return. The walk passes through a variety of heath and woodland before coming to the magnificent views of steep cliffs and rock formations.

This isthmus was once guarded by a line of ferocious dogs to prevent convicts escaping across the Neck from Port Arthur. The slightest disturbance would set the dogs barking and alert the soldiers.
