COMPARE OUR WALK
So you probably would have heard of the 46km Three Capes Track, this is the official path built by the Tasmanian Government to encourage tourists to explore the Tasman Peninsula and National Park by foot. This multi-million dollar project included the construction of three large spacious public huts, slated steps, viewing platforms and paved paths. This walk has proved incredibly popular and you have to book months in advance to do it.
On that walk, you have to carry a full pack with your food and clothing and bedding, and the walk is unguided. The huts have limited amenities and you sleep in bunks. The Three Capes Track can only be walked in one direction, with bookings for only 48 people per day and this quota fills fast.
The official walk misses the first Cape being Cape Raoul. It begins with a boat ride out of Port Arthur onto Denmans Cove, to the start of the Three Capes Track. From here it’s a four-day walk with three days traversing Cape Pillar and the fourth day passing Cape Hauy before walkers exit at Fortescue Bay.
OUR THREE CAPES GUIDED WALK IS QUITE A DIFFERENT PRODUCT
First, it’s pack free so you only have to carry a daypack with basic essentials – water, jacket and lunch. It is fully guided. Our exceptional guides will make the landscape come to life. The guides are great storytellers who know the perfect balance of imparting fascinating stories to keep our guests entertained as well enjoying a walk of discovery.

Our three-day trip starts with a walk to Cape Raoul, which our guests rate as their favourite Cape, the views from the end of the Cape are simply spectacular. Our guests also walk to Cape Hauy famous for the Totem Pole and Candlestick sea stack formations. Another highlight is our walk from Waterfall Bay to Fortescue Bay part of the original Three Capes Track designed by the Hobart Bushwalking Club in the ’60s. This section of the walk has one of the finest rainforest areas on the peninsula.
Whilst our walk does not walk to Cape Pillar. Guests have the choice of seeing Cape Pillar by helicopter or boat cruise. If you choose the helicopter option on day three of your Three Capes walk, you get to see the Three Capes Track from the air and you may even spot walkers looking more like a soldier ants. Whilst the cruise allows seeing the giant sea cliffs from their base to get a true indication of their grandeur. You won’t be disappointed whichever option you choose!
