Hike the rugged ancient cliffs of Tasmania through woodlands and coastlines on the Three Capes Track.

The Three Capes Track is a cliff hugging hike in the wilds of Tasmania. The amazing, ancient dolerite cliffs of Cape Pillar, Cape Hauy, and Cape Raoul drop 300 meters directly to the ocean, making them the tallest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere. This is a hut hike and allows only 48 hikers each day. Hikers start and finish their journey at the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site. Hikers might even see migratory whales, dolphins, and resident fur seal populations. The hike takes you through woodlands, ferny forests, and coastal areas.
