what a view

I did this as part of the three capes. It was breathtaking - the walk and the view. Rugged coastline, savage waters and beautiful wildlife make for a great hike

The highlight of the walk is the cape itself, but there are some views on the way and the vegetation is always changing. The cape is spectacular - we had seen it from a distance while on the Three Capes Track and it was great to complete the trio. Like Cape Pillar, there is a (noisy) seal colony at the... More

The best place we visited on the Tasman Peninsula! Really happy we trekked up the large hill. The views were more than worth it, and the trip up was interesting as well. We didn't do the full cape hike as we didn't have time, but plan to on our next visit. This would be our number 1 pick for a... More

We took the drive and walk down to Cape Raoul in the Port Arthur area about a month ago and it has to be one of the most amazing coastal views we have seen in a long time, possibly the best in Australia and Tasmania. Easy walking trails for us, took about 5 hours overall and the coastal cliffs were... More

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
