We planned to do this walk but the access road was very primitive and not appropriate for a rental vehicle. We may have missed out on a better trail head but directions from the locals we talked with suggest a four wheel drive is really needed. If you plan to do this hike more detailed advanced planning is needed than... More

Our trip took us from close to Port Atrhur up around the coast to Eagleneck. The scenary is just breathtaking , cliffs rising straight out of the ocean for hundreds of metres. The highest cliffs in Tasmania. You get to sea Seals, sea eagles albatrosses and all manner of marine life, not to mention dolphins playing around the fast boats.... More

Walked as part of Three Capes Walk. Amazing scenic views, good place to take lunch. Not to be rushed as many steps up and down but worth the journey.

Decent walk through a fair amount of mud at the start! We skipped Shipstern Bluff as the weather turned on our way back, but we thoroughly enjoyed the Cape walk. Very windy out at the end of the Cape, great views along the way, an amazing part of the world! Loved the 'private' composting loo provided by the lovely neighbour... More

This is a fantastic walk 14km return (5 hours). Take your time to enjoy the stunning scenery. Loved this walk. Moderate level of fitness is required.

Cape Raoul is one of many fantastic day walks on Tasman Peninsula, with its high sea cliffs, viewing spots and a great place at the tip of the Cape to sit and have lunch. About 5 hour walk to enjoy time for viewing, photos and food stops. Other great walks on Tasman Peninsula include Cape Huay, Crescent Bay Tatnells Hill,... More

Stunning views of the coastline with big waves. Take a climb to the cliff top walks if you dare. Cape Raoul is situated at the Southern most part of the Tasman Peninsula in the S.E. Tasmania. Ranked No.4 on TripAdvisor among 10 attractions in Port Arthur.

This 14 km return hike is definitely worth going! A moderately fit individual could easily do it within 4-6 hours return. Wonderful journey through different types of forest and environment. Sneak peaks of beautiful sceneries energised us as we go through the forests. Would definitely recommend this trail. Also, wear something comfy and warm as the temperature can drop drastically...

The natural lookouts along the track are well worth the hike, better than the end point, the cape itself. Well worth the walk.

I done this hike back in 2014, walking in was quite easy. You can get to a pretty amazing view not too far into the walk, but I really recommend walking right to the end as it really is spectacular. Definitely worth taking your lunch, and sitting on the point taking in the views. Like most hikes be careful of... More
