Remote, rugged and totally remarkable – the south east of Tasmania has an undeniable allure. Jumping off from your base in historic Port Arthur, walk a section of the celebrated Three Capes Track and explore the scenery that surrounds it. From soaring, jagged cliffs to sand dunes and secluded bays, this corner of the island offers so much to the curious explorer. Trek to the serrated spires of Cape Raoul, pass by caves and blowholes on your way round Mt Brown, chill out on Crescent Beach and hike to the dramatic dolerite columns of Cape Hauy. Prepare for a matchless encounter with some of Australia’s most awe-inspiring landscapes.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Stay in the fascinating village of Port Arthur, a small place with a big history. A former penal colony, there are a wealth of stories to uncover here.
  • Hike to the unusual, jagged spires of Cape Raoul, taking in showstopping views of Mt Brown, Arthurs Peak, Mt Fortescue and the soaring cliffs of Cape Pillar along the way.
  • Venture through gorgeous woodland dotted with wildflowers to come upon the dramatic dolerite columns of Cape Hauy which plunge into a wild sea below.
  • Start and end your adventure in the flourishing city of Hobart, paying a visit to ningina tunapri - TMAG's Tasmanian Aboriginal culture gallery

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip involves plenty of walking over varied terrain and is best suited to travellers with a good level of mobility. Good footwear, clothing for all types of Tasmanian weather, plus perhaps walking poles are recommended. Details on physical activities can be found in the itinerary.
  • This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
  • Please note that this trip is not the same as the Parks & Wildlife Service's Three Capes Track package.

I have just returned from the Walk the Tasman Peninsula tour with Intrepid, it was nothing short of spectacular. The hiking isnt easy but so rewarding it all balances out. Our guides were beyond amazing, so knowledgable and encouraging and the sights you will see will blow your mind. If you're looking for a company who cares about the environment as much as its cutomers then Intrepid is the way to go.

Felt very privileged to be a part of this new Intrepid adventure. Our guides were amazing and each day brought beautiful surprises and new memories. Krissy’s knowledge is outstanding and felt honoured to be learning from her.
