Compared to the Tasman Arch, this lookout was pretty great. Great view of the ocean and seeing the water hit the rocks gave it a nice touch. Only a few minutes walk from the main car park.

I liked this one. The waves splash over these rocks, over and over. Sometimes it is high, other times it is low. I watched it for a while. It was a great attraction. Worthwhile to see!

A tourist or walker or lower of nature cannot go wring by visiting this part of Tasmania. The state has an identity of its own.We visited this as a walk that included other features.

Just past the Blowhole, get great views of the cliffs and the coastline. Just a short walk from the car.

This Lookout and the fish van made the trip to the Blowhole worthwhile. It is only a short walk to the Lookout and provides a good view of the rugged coastline and the the relentless crashing waves that have created this abrupt cliff lined coast.
