    One of the most impressive trips was the visit to the Maingon lookout, Remarkable Cave and the Palmers Hill lookout. Remarkable Cave is aply named for the shape of Tasmania that can be seen at low tide. The Cave is via a good path to reach from the parking place of the Maingon lookout. The Maingon Bay and the Remarkable Cave are a fascinating creation of natuur. The nearby Palmers Hill has one of the most beautiful look outs of Tasman Peninsula.

    For a video impression see Lookouts and Remarkable Cave.

    Quiets en silents beaches for walking, swimming, surfing. and fishing.
    Also secluded beaches between rugged coastline with spectacular natural scenery.

    Special the Fortescue Bay, this is one of the most beautiful places of the Tasman Peninsula.
    It is long sheltered beach with unspoiled views and tranquil waters. From the campgrounds at this Bay can you make a - two to three day - walk to the Cape Pillar, the highest seacliffs in Australia, at 300 m (we have not done this walk).

    For a video impression see Beaches Tasman Peninsula.

    Not far from Nubeena, in the western part of peninsula, the Coal Mines Historic Site at the Saltwater River. It's no far walk from the car park. Here you can see and understand the hardship under prisoners underwent to produce coal from the mines. Displays with information boards will walk you through this historic site. The barracks are due to ruins by several fires but still give a good picture of what it once was. Especially the isolation cell, 30 days in darkness and silence. The same impression in the Cascades at Koonya. There we got a impressive tour by a acquaintance of Colleen. He has here a nice and interesting museum established. Several barracks are now converted to luxury cottage which you can rent.
