Photograph the Tasman Peninsula by Boat

Rate this Adventure Australia Fortescue Bay Camping Ground

Added by Madison Sankovitz

This is an amazingly scenic peninsula famous for its dolerite rock cliffs towering over the Tasman Sea.

Viewing the Tasman Peninsula by boat offers easy access and an amazing perspective of the towering dolerite sea cliffs that you can't get from land. Put your boat in at Fortescue Bay campground and travel out around the peninsula to the south. You can travel for hours with unending scenery and wildlife to see, such as birds, seals, and dolphins. You can travel around Tasman Island, also in the area, if you would like. There are many small caves and tunnels throughout the cliffs to explore if you have a small enough boat. 

Work with your boat and camera to capture various angles of the dolerite rock spires and cliffs. A wide angle lens will provide the best images of this area because the cliffs may surprise you with their size, towering over your head as you pass by.

Tasmanian National Parks Pass available at the Fortescue Bay office or online at parks.tas.gov.au
