This area is fantastic for views that you could never forget. Would recommend all holiday travellers take in this scenery.

Doing the Cape Hauy walk from Fortescue Bay was one of the highlights of our trip. The walk is reasonably demanding, especially with a toddler in carrier in your back. Plan around taking the full 4 hours for the round trip, that way you won't...More

A 20 minute drive from Port Arthur, commencing at pretty Fortescue Bay, this is an excellent 4-5 hour hike (12 km) alternating up and down with stunning coastal seascapes and pillars. Numerous photographic vantage points along the way. We saw pademelons and plenty of bird...More

Fortescue Bay was the finishing point for our 3 Capes Track adventure and it was indeed a fitting end with sparkling blue waters and white sand the icing on the cake. With a small shop selling basics (who needs more than coffee, ice cream, milk...More

Beautiful drive ( about 14km) to the Bouviac Bay beach and the camp ground. Stunning natural scenery and forest. Crystal clear waters and pristine beaches. Well worth the drive.

After 4 days trekking the Three Capes trail it was magic coming across this pristine white bay beach. The campground that borders it looked great too.

You drive down a 14 km dirt road to access Fortescue Bay and it is pristine and unspoiled with Eucalyptus forests all around and a wide beach with trails at each end. Rustic National Park camping.

The water here is clear, cold but super refreshing. The salt content is slightly elevated which helps clean off the grime of a four day hike across the 3 Capes. The showers need tokens.

Stayed for three nights. Absolutely beautiful scenery, wildlife and beautiful birds. Loved the new toilet block. Watch out for the Currawongs, which will get into any food that is left out! Walk to Cape Huay, worth the four hours return. Canoe Bay is a shorter...More

A long drive from Hobert with the last 11kms on a rutted unsealed road - but at the end are great camping facilities with a beach of soft white sand and good coastal walks in a northerly direction.....simply stunning scenery!

I cannot answer for the other walks as I only had time for one myself and ended up doing the Cape Hauy walk. I was a bit taken aback by the sheer number of steps as I've done a few walks in my time and never experienced... More
