Things To see and Do
Tasman National Park
Eaglehawk Neck is not only the gateway to the Tasman Peninsula, it
is also the start off point to exploring Tasman National Park. This
National Park protects what is one of Australia's most scenic and
dramatic stretches of coastline. It's a photographer's delight, with
steep rocky cliffs, natural stone arches, underwater and
above-the-waterline sea caves, the biggest blowhole in the southern
hemisphere, and so much more.
Not far from Eaglehawk Neck is Doo Town, where the residents have
become very creative - and funny - by incorporating the word "Doo" into
the novel names of their properties. Doo Town is on Pirate's Bay, from
which cruises up and down the Tasman Peninsula coastline depart.
Pirates Bay is the large bay to the east of Eaglehawk Neck. The
spectacular rocky coast around Pirates Bay features Australia’s
highest marine cliffs as well as caves, chasms, a blowhole and the
famous tessellated pavement. Divers can explore the underwater rock
formations and scattered shipwrecks. It is also the departure point for
cruises down the east coast of the peninsula and Tasman Island. The
cruises are very reasonably priced and off a close up view of this
spectacular coastline, as well as seals and other marine life.
