Easily accessible by foot but a degree of fitness required as there are a few steps to climb up and down. Wonderful views of the bay and Remarkable Cave. This is a long way south, facing the Southern Ocean. The sea rolls into the beach with a cascade of rollers breaking into great surf. Well worth the stop!

We went to see the Remarkable Cave - which you cannot get right down to ground level unless you jump over the guard rail which is what some people were doing. The hike down doesn't take long but most of the trail is stairs. The view is great when you get there. The lookout above is great for viewing as... More

This is well worth the walk down to see the cave. Plenty of parking available and a must see - not all that far from Port Arthur.

Remarkable Cave is some steps down from Maingon Bay. I was a bit disappointed when I saw the cave. Nothing special here if you have visited the stunning views of the ocean and rocks on the Great Ocean Drive in Victoria.

This cave really is remarkable! Simply hop the fence when you climb down the walkway and you can wonder through the gave, given that it's not high tide. Only down the road from the Port Arthur historic site and definitely worth a visit.

Went here on a recommendation and both the lookout and the cave are amazing. The ruggedness of the coast line, at the place and along the drive is truly more than enough. The cave itself is amazing. If you are there at low tide you miss the water and the sounds, but it appears people take the opportunity to walk... More

Although not in our prime, we walked down the steps and then hopped over the viewing platform to gain access to the cave which is actually in two parts and onto the beach. It was well worth it.

From reading about this cave I thought we would be able to walk into it but that was obviously many years ago. It is still worth the walk down the stairs and they are really not too bad on the way up. The tide was out but it was still an interesting site.

There are a large number of stairs to traverse to be able to view this interesting phenominam, seems even more on the way back up, but it was worth it.
