On our way back from Port Arthur we came across a place within the Tasman National Park called the The Tasman Arch so we stopped for a look.
The Tasman Arch is a rock formation that has been carved out of the sandstone by the Great Southern Ocean. On rough weather days the water appears to boil at the base of the formation where the ocean comes in.
There is a short walking track that takes you out to another rock formation known as The Devils Kitchen. This is a rugged 60m (200 ft) deep cleft carved out of the rock by the Great Southern Ocean.
It’s not until you continue along the track for a while longer that you come to the sea cliff lookout where you are presented with awesome views of the Tasman Peninsula and The Great Southern Ocean.
I’m pleased we made a quick stop at these natural attractions, because it’s not likely we will get down to Tasmania again for quite some time.
Unless of course we win the lottery, then well be leaving ASAP 🙂
