Point of Interest
“Just a 10 minute drive South of The Log House, Dip Falls is a spectacular water fall in Winter. Though mostly dry during Summer, the reduced volume of water allows for easy viewing of the unique hexagonal,columns of basalt rock form the falls. The Forest Reserve also showcases The Big Tree. An easy 15 minute walk along a gravel bush road from the falls or a 2 minute drive to view a 62m tall Browntop Stringybark tree with an immense girth of 17m!!”

“A magnet for beach ramblers and rock climbers Nudging out to Bass Strait Rocky Cape National Park offers spectacular views from many points along its walking tracks. Aboriginal heritage, ship wrecks, rock formations and rolling hills of wilderness are just some of the spectacular sights you’ll find in this rugged wilderness. Listed below are what Rocky Cape National Park is famous for. Wildlife Native wildlife is abundant throughout this park. Treading carefully and with a torch, evenings make the perfect time meet wallabies, wombats and possums. Flora and Fauna In spring and summer see the hundreds of different plant species in flower, most of them wind, salt and fire tolerant surviving the wild coastal conditions. Many of the 40 orchid species are found in the park, many of which lie dormant underground until fire passes. Bush walks Rocky Cape National Park offers a variety of walks ranging from less than 20 minutes to a full day. These take in Aboriginal rock shelters and caves, scenic hills full of wildflowers and birds, and tranquil beaches, bays and rocky headland. Below are two of our favourite walks - there are many more walks in the National Park. Go to visitcradlecoast.com.au (Short walks in Rocky Cape National Park, Tasmania) for more information. Banksia Grove/Caves Circuit Up to 1 hour return, approximately 1.6km: A clearly defined track near the Sisters Beach boat ramp climbs into the heath-covered hills. You soon reach Banksia Grove, an extensive stand of saw banksias with spectacularly large cylindrical flowers. When these ripen they develop seed capsules along the drying flowers. These capsules give mature flowers the face-like features which author May Gibbs fictionalised as her 'bad banksia men'. From Banksia Grove take the link track towards the coast. Here you'll find an Aboriginal shelter, Lee Archer Cave, set dramatically above the rocky shore. A platform allows viewing of the cave while protecting midden material. Please keep to this platform. After returning to the junction, climb steeply down to Wet Cave. Towards the rear of this aptly named cave you will often find a pool of water. From the cave the track drops down to the coast. A rock-hop of 100m or so leads back to the Sisters Beach boat ramp. Postmans Track 1 hour one way; 2 1/2 hours return, 2.1km one way: Named after the route used for horseback postal deliveries early this century, this track circles the easternmost section of the park, near Sisters Beach. Leaving from the roadside near Lake Llewellyn, the signposted track climbs east into the wooded hills known as the Two Sisters, making a wide sweep of them before reaching the cliffs above Walkers Cove. The track returns to the eastern end of Sisters Beach. It is a comfortable 1 - 1 1/2 hour walk if cars are left at each end. Alternatively continue along the beach until you reach the road and return to your starting point, making a 2 - 2 1/2 hour circuit. ”
