  • Not worth it... 150 steep steps down and back to get to a viewing platform to watch waves crashing inside a cave... lots of scenes like this around TAS.  more »
  • A pleasant 15-minute walk (return) takes you along a country path, followed by wooden steps down to this cave. It's a free attraction and well worth seeing. The rock formation in the shape of the isla...  more »
  • Only 115 steps down takes you back through time as you witness the layers that made Tasmania. At the bottom is a viewing platform for an unbelievable view.  more »

  • Pretty good view on the platform. But the actual cave, well its not that remarkable. Especially when you compare it with other caves this one is just short and just happen to sorta look like Tasmania at certain angle.
  • It's so gorgeous that you want to stay there... Definitely try to get to the beach after you reach to the end of walking boards (jump over ;) )
  • Nice place to spend the night. Really quite, perfect south view, bathrooms available.
  • Not sure about the remarkable part of it. apparently some dude thought light coming through the cave looked like Tasmania if you stood at some angle and "that" is remarkable!. That said the place is well worth a stop. I only wish you could go down into the cave itself. Highly recommended
  • Worth a visit - not for the people who have trouble with the stairs. We walked down atleast 50+ stairs to reach this beautiful spot hidden in the rocky beach and, at first, were a little disappointed as the access to the caves is now restricted due to safety concerns. However, the explorers can climb down the bridge easily to reach the cave. They can then go through it to the other side to access the rocky beach. (Its an amazing experience but do it at your risk). Be careful while walking through the cold water pools in the tunnel. The freezing water can be knee deep at certain places and rocks below can be a lot slippery. Also, this place had beautiful pattern of rocks cut by the sea over period of time and small exhibition of pebble art just before the cave entry. On the way, we had wonderful views of the Great Tasman Arch and the sea waves cutting through the arch which made our little 7 mins trek enjoyable. Will go to this place again for: 1. Picturesque landscapes 2. Able to go down to the cave. ( Dont do this during high tide)
