motorcycles, travel, friendship, respect… I may drift off into WTF-land at times so hang in there.

A Quickie.

G’day

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 Devils Kitchen

The Devils Kitchen

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 🙂

Cheers

  3. I get the impression that few things beat a Tasmanian quickie… 😉

    Sooo, the trail you took out to the Devils Kitchen–did it take you over the arch, or is that area off-limits?

    They are dang cool looking spots, Ghost, all of ’em.

    • You got that right Ry 😉

      The track does a loop around and over the arch and there is a spur that takes you out to the Devils kitchen.

      You can do a leisurely walk around the whole thing in around 20 minutes (plus soaking it all in)

    • Do it Laurie, you won’t be disappointed. There is so much to see and do and if you get the chance to ride some of those roads the memories will stay with you for a long time
