South East Cape

Plunging cliffs, surging ocean waves and dark convict-era history – South East Tasmania is perfect for those who prefer their landscapes served wild.

With a coastline mottled by the erosive power of wind and water, the region is nothing short of spectacular. Go on a cruise or peer over the cliff-top precipices of windswept capes to see crumbling sea stacks. Find a corner of calm in the brilliant-white sweep of a sandy cove or a beautiful bushland walking track. Uncover the dark secrets of Tasmania’s convict history and go on a ghost tour, if you dare.
