Three Capes walk features in Great Walks magazine!

Oct 21, 2021

The latest issue of Great Walks magazine is out and it features a story on our Thee Capes pack-free guided walk!

Great Walks editor Brent McKean attended the walk a while back and he says he was as absorbed in the natural beauty of the place as wel as the stories about it told to him by his guide.

“Danny told ripping yarns about some of the characters who lived in this part of Tasmania,” says Brent. “My favourite was the bushranger Martin Cash who in 1840 became the first person to successfully swim the shark infested waters off the Tasman Peninsula as a means to escaped the horrid conditions of Port Arthur.”

“This is what I love about these trips, you leave them a little fitter and a little wiser!”

 

This three-day tour explores the natural beauty of the Tasman Peninsula in the far south-east corner of Tasmania, a region famous for its three spectacular capes featuring the highest, vertical seas cliffs in Australia and a dramatic coastline of caves and towering sea stacks.

You walk to the spectacular and must-do Cape Raoul with its dramatic dolerite cliffs.

Then onto stunning Cape Hauy to view the famous ‘Candlestick’ and ‘Totem Pole’ sea stacks and you walk the gorgeous Tasman Coastal Track, between Waterfall and Fortescue Bays, with its lush rainforest and breathtaking coastal views.
