Walk the short distance to the bronze bulldog and read the sign about how the Neck was used to keep convicts from escaping.

Historic site, 5 minutes walk away. Fascinating insight into the area. Must see.

On the way to Port Arthur Historic Site on the Tasman Peninsula is Eaglehawk Neck, a narrow 30 metre-wide isthmus that join the peninsula to the rest of Tasmania. This isthmus was once guarded by a line of ferocious dogs to prevent convicts escaping across the Neck from the nearby penal colony. The slightest disturbance would set the dogs barking and alert the soldiers. (There were dogs on platforms in the water as well). The convict bushranger Martin Cash was one of the few to escape the dog line – twice, earning him considerable prestige amongst his peers. The area also included a guardhouse, a store, a jetty (the remains of which can still be seen) and military barracks for the soldiers living here. The only remaining building to survive from the period of military occupation on the Neck is the Officers' Quarters. Built in 1832, the building is the oldest timber military building still standing in Australia. Today it houses a museum that depicts life on the Tasman Peninsula during the 1800's. The museum is open 7 days a week and is free of charge.
