Eaglehawk Neck

Access

Getting there

The Eaglehawk Neck Historic Site is located on the scenic Tasman Peninsula. It can be visited in conjunction with Port Arthur and the Coal Mines Historic Site.

From Hobart, take the Tasman Highway (A3) to Sorell and turn right onto the A9 for Port Arthur. The Officer's Quarters is the only remaining stucture at Eaglehawk Neck from the convict era and has a good display which relates the history of the area. If travelling south towards Port Arthur, just before you reach The Neck turn off to your left and follow the road signs to the Officer's Quarters car park.

Parking and wheelchair access are available in front of the building. Alternatively park at the Community Hall at The Neck and walk back up the pathway to the old wooden building.
