The Three Capes Track

Australia’s premier coastal bushwalking experience


Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service’s largest and most ambitious track project, the Three Capes Track will be a 46km world class, multi-day walking experience on the Tasman Peninsula. It will showcase Cape Pillar and Cape Hauy, as well as the stunning natural features and scenery of the region including Australia's highest sea cliffs and spectacular ocean views.

Leaving from the Port Arthur Historic Site and finishing at Fortescue Bay, the walk will feature hut accommodation and a boat experience. Walkers will be offered two experiences; walking independently and staying in public huts, and a commercially guided walk with separate private huts. 

The Three Capes Track will be a hut-based, independent walk that provides mattresses and cooking facilities, meaning lighter packs for walkers, who will not be required to carry tents, sleeping mats or stoves. 

The walk will provide an achievable walking experience for a wide range of ages and abilities. The track is being constructed to Australian Standard Class 3, which means it will be well formed, mud-free and about one metre wide, which allows walkers to concentrate on the views rather than their feet. 

The Three Capes Track will open in November 2015 with online-bookings being taken from September 2015.
