I had come for the lookouts, the Tasman Arch and other vistas, but a little statue on the ismas below the Tessalted Pavements, called The Dog Line, was the most fascinating. A tribute to the Dogs guarding this narrow prisoner escape route. Brilliant.

Guess many tourists like us are destination focused (Port Arthur) and can easily miss the great sights, walks and lookouts around the Eaglehawk area.
Convinced family to explore a few hours on way onto peninsula then some more on the way back out few days later from PA. Beautiful.

Go check out some of the sights in the region. There is the blowhole, eagleneck lookout, the devil's kitchen, Tasman arch, waterfall bay, tessellated pavement and several other lookout points along the coast if you'd like to go for a walk and stretch the legs. Plenty of food options too, from ice cream and bakeries to fancy scenic restaurants

we visited during summer 2020 and it wasn't too crowded. views are nice - especially the "blowhole" - and walks are easy for oldies (like us!) and youngsters alike. car parking is free, and no payment to enter the site. great photo ops of the lovely scenery, and a nice gentle walk. try the food truck at the lower carpark - great homemade berry ice cream (the berry bowl at $6 is a must) and if you have an appetite, try the oysters or calamari and chips in a paper cone. limited tables/benches but it wasn't too packed when we were there, so we got a table

We turned off the main road on way back from Port Arthur and it was beautiful!! Within short proximity we saw the blowhole, devils kitchen, Tasman bridge and a cute little bay/pier.

Short stop to view distant cliff and churning waters beneath. Food truck selling coff3and snacks here but warned they 're very slow so not to order. Visitors read books, spread carpet on the ground, play music even at this spot. Most however stop for 10 minutes. There's a telescope but too misty in the morning to see anything.

Don't really understand the historic element to the site, it's not really evident, what is, is the stunning scenery it should be marketed on it's scenic properties which are much more evident

Full of history about early days in Australia - well signed and very interesting to read as you travel along. Wonderful part of Tasmania.

The drive to Eaglehawk Neck is easy from Hobart. There are so many things to see so allow a full day. A must see is the "Dog Line". Visit the officer's quarters first and a short walk up is the Dog Line. There is ample parking for caravans just past the officer's quarters. A little further up is the Tasman Arch, Devils kitchen and blowhole. Both next to each other and worth the very short walk. If you still have around 5 hours or more, then pop into Port Arthur as well.

Worth a stop when on your way to Port Arthur and it is part of the convict story. No restrooms or park ranger though.
