The Three Capes and the Tasman Peninsula region is home to one of the most spectacular coastlines not just in Australia, but perhaps in the world. Each of the Three Capes which are on the south-east coast of Tasmania has its own unique and beautiful towering rock features and breathtaking views, and the journey to reach them is just as spectacular.
On this four day adventure through the beautiful Tasman National Park, you’ll experience some of the best day trekking in Tasmania. On this trek, you’ll only need to carry a daypack, which will make the trekking experience and sightseeing much more comfortable and enjoyable. Each day will bring a new adventure as you explore the best sections of the Three Capes Track and after a day of trekking, kick back and relax in your 4-star accommodation and enjoy restaurant quality meals at Stewarts Bay Lodge in central Port Arthur. On this adventure, you’ll also trek from Waterfall Bay to Fortescue Bay, climb Mount Brown as well as have an inclusive team dinner at the highly acclaimed 1830 restaurant which overlooks the Port Arthur historic site.
Only a 30% deposit is required to secure your position unless the trek date is within 60 days and then the full payment is required. If the trek date is not guaranteed to depart yet, please do not book flights or pre-trek accommodation until we have confirmed the date as guaranteed in the box. Your funds will be held in our adventure holding account until guaranteed.
Three Capes Overview and Itinerary
Journey through the rugged south-east coast of Tasmania on this fully supported and professionally guided four-day trek. Discovering parts of the pristine and wild Tasman National Park, you’ll encounter a new and different adventure each day.
Witness the towering cliff faces of the Tasman Peninsula, home to the awe-inspiring Three Capes. Made up of Cape Raoul, Cape Hauy and Cape Pillar, Three Capes is considered by many to be the most unique coastal landmark in Australia – if not the world. Your adventure will take you to the summit of Mount Brown, providing breathtaking panoramic views of Crescent Bay, Cape Raoul and Cape Pillar. You’ll also trek the coastline from Waterfall Bay to Fortescue Bay. The longest trek of your four-day itinerary, this stretch is one of the most stunning in Tasmania with its impressive vistas and ever-changing rainforest landscape.
On the final day, you’ll head to the water for a three-hour wilderness cruise of Tasman Island, Cape Pillar and the coastline up to Eaglehawk Neck with award-winning Pennicott Wilderness Journeys. Get even closer to the local sea life who call this exquisite and untouched region home. Learn about the infamous history of the Port Arthur convict settlement during a delicious team dinner at the highly acclaimed restaurant 1830, set within the gates of Port Arthur and overlooking the world-renowned historic site.
You’ll get to experience the best of what the Three Capes and Tasman Peninsula has to offer each day and then head back to your four-star accommodation at Stewarts Bay Lodge in Port Arthur to refresh, dine on seasonal meals made from local produce, and prepare for your next day’s exploration. Stewarts Bay Lodge is nestled between the beach and the forest, where you will sleep to the sound of the calming ocean, amongst the world heritage national park.

DAY 1 - TRANSFER HOBART TO STEWARTS BAY LODGE - MOUNT BROWN AND CRESCENT BAY
Day 1 – Meet in the foyer of the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Hobart at 7:30 AM. Our private bus will drive the team to the Tasman Peninsula. Your accommodation for the four days will be at the Stewarts Bay Lodge, situated on Stewarts Bay next to Port Arthur.
Mid-Morning Trek – Mount Brown and Crescent Bay
Trekking Time: 4 hours (will vary depending on team speed, breaks, etc.)
Distance: 9km (return)
Meals Included: a-la-carte breakfast at Gabriel’s on the Bay, morning tea & pre-packed lunch & trail snacks prepared by the chef, a-la-carte dinner at Gabriel’s on the Bay
We will meet in the foyer of the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Hobart at 7:30 AM for our transfer to the Tasman Peninsula. As a suggestion, we recommend staying there as it makes for an easy meeting place and transfer for you, but if not, we highly recommend staying in a nearby hotel.
The bus ride to Port Arthur is approximately 90 minutes. When you arrive at Stewarts Bay Lodge, it will be too early to check in. We will store our luggage and start preparing for the first leg of the adventure – a trek to the Mount Brown summit following on to Crescent Bay. We suggest having your daypacks ready when you leave Hobart.
When you arrive at the hotel at around 9:00 AM, you’ll be provided with a packed lunch freshly prepared by the hotel, along with trail snacks. We also recommend bringing some of your favourite snacks for the day treks, as well as a small thermos (750ml -1,000ml) that can either hold pre-made coffee, soup or hot water to make coffee or tea whilst trekking. You’ll head off from your hotel for the Mount Brown trek at around 10:00 AM on a 10-minute bus ride to the departure point.
The walk to Mount Brown is moderately easy. The hardest part is the uphill section leading to the summit. The summit has sweeping panoramic views of the spectacular Tasman Island, Arthurs Peak and Port Arthur’s Carnarvon Bay. You will also be rewarded with distant panoramic views further south to Cape Raoul and Bruny Island, as well as Crescent Bay, which is regarded as the most beautiful beach on the Tasman Peninsula.
The path to Mount Brown begins at the Remarkable Caves car park. For much of the way, you’ll traverse undulating sand dunes with healthy vegetation. On your travels, you also visit the large rock cavity Maingon Blowhole. With plenty of photos and videos taken on the summit of Mount Brown, we’ll head down to re-join the Crescent Bay track and follow that north until we hit the sand dunes that reveal the beautiful Crescent Bay beach.
After our visit to Crescent Bay beach, we will return to the bus for the 10-minute ride back to our hotel to check in. We would expect to have you back at your hotel to check in by about 3:00 PM or earlier. After settling into your room, dinner will commence at 6:30 PM, where you’ll enjoy a beautifully cooked restaurant dinner at the lodge made from local produce. This will be a great opportunity to simply relax and kick back with your fellow trekkers over a local wine or two.
DAY 2 - CAPE RAOUL
Day 2 – Cape Raoul Trek
Trekking Time: 5 hours (will vary depending on team speed, breaks, etc.)
Distance: 14km (return)
Meals Included: a-la-carte breakfast at Gabriel’s on the Bay, morning tea & pre-packed lunch & trail snacks prepared by the chef, dinner at 1830 Bar & Grill
Today is a trek to Cape Raoul, offering spectacular coastal lookouts of the Tasman Peninsula. A moderately easy path, there are only a few short steep sections. The return journey takes approximately five hours to complete, allowing us plenty of time to relax, enjoy lunch prepared by the restaurant, and take in the vistas of the surrounding Tasman Peninsula.
Heading off after breakfast at 8:30 AM, the bus ride to the start of the track is 25 minutes. You won’t have to go too far before you are rewarded with a view of the famous and incredible dolerite cliffs. This area has recorded some of the strongest wind speeds in the world, so fasten your hats!
Along the plateau, on the way to the tip of Cape Raoul, the sweeping views will continue to open up revealing the towering cliffs along rugged coastline. You will see as far north to Cape Pillar and south to the ever-popular holiday destination of Bruny Island. Cape Raoul is famous for its dolerite organ pipes, and you won’t be disappointed when you see them up-close, towering into the sky from the ocean.
At the tip of Cape Raoul, you will take in the majestic views and enjoy lunch before we head back to the bus, where we expect to return to the lodge by 3:00 PM. You will have time to rest up and get ready for a special night ahead. Tonight, we will be having a team dinner at the highly acclaimed restaurant 1830 that overlooks the Port Arthur Historic Site. Made from fresh Tasmanian local produce, you will have the choice of entree and main, or a main and dessert. Take it a little easy on the famous Tasmanian wine though, as tomorrow is the longest leg of your adventure.
DAY 3 - WATERFALL BAY TO FORTESCUE BAY
Day 3 – Waterfall Bay to Fortescue Bay Trek
Trekking Time: 8-9 hours (will vary depending on team speed, breaks, etc.)
Distance: 18km (one-way trek)
Meals Included: a-la-carte breakfast at Gabriel’s on the Bay, morning tea & pre-packed lunch & trail snacks prepared by the chef, a-la-carte dinner at Gabriel’s on the Bay
Today is the longest trek of your 4-day itinerary, and it is highly regarded as one of the most fascinating on the Tasman Peninsula with its amazing views and ever-changing rainforest scenery. At around 18km long, it will take 8-9 hours to complete. We still classify it as moderately easy-going and well worth the effort.
There are some steep sections heading up to Tatnells Hill, but nothing a basic level of fitness won’t be able to knock over. The big advantage is, it’s a one-way trek from end-to-end, making the distance not as noticeable because you’ll be constantly encountering different, beautiful and unique scenery along the way – making the kilometres tick over with ease.
After breakfast, we will head off a little earlier than the past days due to the distance we need to cover. Leaving at 7:30 AM from the lodge, the bus ride is a short 25-minute journey to the starting spot at Waterfall Bay. The beauty of this trip is that you’ll have stunning views back to Pirate’s Bay and Eaglehawk Nest at the start of the day, and then a taste of what’s to come tomorrow as you skirt the coastline and get stunning glimpses of Cape Hauy and Tasman Island. Depending on where we are, we will stop for lunch and have plenty of time to soak up the remarkable views along the way.
Arriving at Fortescue, we will either take a pre-arranged taxi-bus back to our private bus at Waterfall Bay, or our private bus will be there waiting to take us back to the lodge. This arrangement will depend on the number of guides, etc. We aim to be back at the hotel between 4:00 PM and 5:00 PM, so you have time to prepare for dinner at the lodge.
Day 4 – Morning Trek to Cape Hauy – Afternoon Wilderness Cruise (Optional) – Return to Hobart
Trekking Time: 4 hours (will vary depending on team speed, breaks, etc.)
Distance: 8km (return)
Wilderness Cruise Time: 3 hours – departs at 2:00 PM (Optional extra if prone to seasickness – refer below for other activity options)
Meals Included: a-la-carte breakfast at Gabriel’s on the Bay, morning tea & pre-packed lunch & trail snacks prepared by the chef (option for lunch in Port Arthur prior to the wilderness cruise)
Leaving the best till last, today is a trek to Cape Hauy in the morning and then a three-hour wilderness cruise with the award-winning Pennicott Wilderness Journeys exploring the sea cliffs up close and personal around Tasman Island and Cape Pillar. The way to Cape Hauy is moderately easy with some short steep uphill sections with well-built stairs as well as downhill sections, which are easily managed. It will take around four hours to complete.
The three-hour wilderness cruise is an added extra in our adventure itinerary when making the booking because we know some people suffer from severe seasickness. We have provided alternative options instead of the wilderness cruise further below.
After breakfast, we will head off at around 7.30 AM from the lodge for a 25-minute bus ride to the start of the trek. We will store our main luggage at the lodge reception ready to collect in the afternoon for the return trip back to Hobart.
The first part of the walk is through sclerophyll forest before the track starts to head down into Cape Hauy where the forest opens up to breath-taking coastal views. Cape Hauy is home to the famous Candlestick and Totem Pole rock features, which are large columns of dolerite rock protruding from the ocean and are popular climbing and abseiling features. At the edge of Cape Hauy, you’ll also see the Hippolytes, which are large formations of rock that sit severed from the mainland. After taking in the amazing views and rock features, we will head back to the bus and into Port Arthur – a 40-minute bus ride.
The wilderness cruise departs at 2:00 PM, but the team must be booked in by 1:30 PM at the latest for departure. There may be time for a quick stop in Port Arthur to grab a coffee, soft drink, or some food, but it will be subject to time.
The Pennicott Wilderness Journeys’ departure facility is close to Port Arthur, so we will manage any extra time accordingly to make sure we are there by 1:30 PM. The three-hour wilderness cruise operates in the water from Port Arthur to Eaglehawk Neck, and you will get up-close and personal with the towering sea cliffs, dolomites, and the abundant and diverse sea life around Tasman Island and Cape Pillar. Pennicott Wilderness Journeys is an award-winning cruise operator in Tasmania. You can read more about them and the wilderness cruise on their website: https://www.pennicottjourneys.com.au/
For those who may choose not to do the wilderness cruise, you have the option of the following activities in the afternoon after the morning Cape Hauy trek:
A tour of the Port Arthur historic settlement and just relax around the Port Arthur area
a helicopter tour with Osbourne Heli Tours which will vary in time and cost depending on the flight package. This option would be subject to availability and you would need to pay for the heli tour directly. Please refer to the Osbourne Heli Tours website for more information: https://www.osbornehelitours.com/
An early transfer back to Hobart.
After your wilderness cruise or alternative activity, the team will rejoin and you will be transferred back to Hobart for either your late flight or to the Hotel Grand Chancellor, which is our drop off point. Those who have flights will be dropped off first. The bus ride back to Hobart is around 90 minutes, so we would have you at Hobart Airport at 7:00 PM at the latest. From the airport, we arrive back at the Grand Chancellor Hotel by around 7:30 PM. We recommend staying at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, or at a hotel in close proximity.

How often do you run the trek?
At this stage, we are building up our trekking operations on Tasmania's south-east coast including the Three Capes and Tasman Peninsula. Given that it's daypack only and day treks out of an established accommodation base, we have the capacity subject to accommodation availability to run a trek a month all year round. We personally feel that that quieter off-season trekking months in Tasmania is some of the best periods for trekking through the popular destinations which is why we have opted to run this trek all year round.
Please also check our Facebook and Instagram feeds because we also announce new trek dates there as well.
What if the fixed dates don't work, can you organise a group custom trek?
Yes, if the dates that we have organised don't work, we can organise a custom date that would suit. We would recommend this option for groups of 8 only.
What is the best time of year to trek in Tasmania?
From our perspective, we believe Tasmania can be trekked all year round depending on the trek location and the experience of the operator. You will generally find the colder months between June and September is much quieter on many of the trekking routes and in and around the local townships and attractions. We believe this can sometimes lead to a more authentic adventure experience and with Tasmania, there is a lot of beauty, ambience and quality local produce to experience during the cooler months.
Tasmania Average Daily Minimum / Maximum Temperatures in Degrees Celsius
How hard is the trek itinerary?
With the right preparation, guides and support, the four-day trek itinerary is very achievable with a moderate level of fitness and the ability to carry a light daypack. We recommend training leading up to any trek because it just makes the experience much more enjoyable. Because it's day treks out of a support location and if by chance you became sick or injured and weren't up to completing one of the day treks, you could just rest or do another activity for the day. We would strongly recommend taking our travel insurance with QBE Travel Insurance because you may be able to claim back some of the costs for that day that you missed or perhaps more if you couldn't continue for the rest of the trek.
Can I stay on after the trek?
Yes, you can extend your stay to explore more of Hobart and Tasmania.
Food, Accomdodation & Facilities
What is the accommodation like in Port Arthur?
The accommodation in Port Arthur is at the Stewarts Bay Lodge and is four-star chalet accommodation.

When we are at Stewarts Bay Lodge, we stay in two-bedroom, two-bathroom deluxe spa chalets which will be on a twin-share basis.For 3 nights we'll enjoy the comfort of a bush set deluxe spa chalet (You may be upgraded to a water view deluxe spa chalet if the bush setting deluxe spa chalet's are booked out or have limited availability). Each room has its own bathroom and there's also a spacious living/dining area and private balcony for each 2 bedroom chalets.
When booking, you can choose a single supplement if you would prefer not to share a room. However, as a single supplement traveller, you will still be sharing a two bedroom chalet with one or two other travellers. If you'd like your own private chalet, please speak to us before booking and we can discuss with you whether this is possible and it would subject to availability and paying the additional costs.

No, it is a requirement to take out travel insurance for this trek because it's a domestic location, but we would strongly recommend it because of the financial outlay. You never know what might happen after you book or during your adventure.
Travel insurance will insure you against:
Loss of baggage
QBE has a travel insurance policy that will insure Australian travellers for domestic holidays. You can read more about the QBE travel insurance policy here. We are not recommending this QBE policy, it's just general advice, so you will need to do your own research and refer to the product disclosure document to see if it's suitable for your needs.
Photos & Media Content
Will I get access to photos & media content?
Yes, any photos that are taken by the Peak Potential Adventures team during the trek will be shared with you via Dropbox. This is a free file/folder sharing service up to 2GB which is usually enough space for any photos that we have taken during the trek. If the photo folder is more than 2GB, we will reduce the quality of the photos. The quality will still be more than enough to share on social media etc.
If you don't already have a Dropbox account, please click here to go through to their signup page. We would recommend using the same email address to signup that you used on the trek booking form because we will generally use that email address when we share the photo folder. Once you have shared access to the photo folder, you will be able to download any photos in that folder. We will usually delete the folder after a month after the trek to free up our available file storage.
