Things To see and Do
Tasman National Park
Eaglehawk Neck is not only the gateway to the Tasman Peninsula, it is also the start off point to exploring Tasman National Park. This National Park protects what is one of Australia's most scenic and dramatic stretches of coastline. It's a photographer's delight, with steep rocky cliffs, natural stone arches, underwater and above-the-waterline sea caves, the biggest blowhole in the southern hemisphere, and so much more.
Not far from Eaglehawk Neck is Doo Town, where the residents have become very creative - and funny - by incorporating the word "Doo" into the novel names of their properties. Doo Town is on Pirate's Bay, from which cruises up and down the Tasman Peninsula coastline depart.
Pirates Bay is the large bay to the east of Eaglehawk Neck. The spectacular rocky coast around Pirates Bay features Australia’s highest marine cliffs as well as caves, chasms, a blowhole and the famous tessellated pavement. Divers can explore the underwater rock formations and scattered shipwrecks. It is also the departure point for cruises down the east coast of the peninsula and Tasman Island. The cruises are very reasonably priced and off a close up view of this spectacular coastline, as well as seals and other marine life.
