Three Capes Lodge Walk
4 days/3 nights


The Three Capes Lodge Walk is a fully guided walking experience along Tasmania’s dramatic Tasman Peninsula with the wild Southern Ocean as your constant.
A boat trip, dolerite spires and 37,000 years of history form part of the journey. Settle in each evening in your architecturally designed in-park lodges and enjoy Tasmania’s finest dining and drinks on this 48km walking adventure.

Day 1: Hobart – Crescent Lodge

Transfer from Hobart to Stewarts Bay, where a private boat takes you to Denman’s Cove. Views to Port Arthur, along with possible seal and dolphin spotting, and some of the highest dolerite cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere give you an indication of the drama to come. Take a gentle walk through coastal woodland to the rocky refuge of Surveyors Cove. At this point, if the Southern Ocean begs, head for a dip before a gradual incline up to the lodge, with views across Crescent Bay. Settle in with a warm shower before a three-course feast of local fare. After dinner, take your Tassie pinot to a quiet deck for your own private sunset.

Approx 2hr walking

Day 2: Crescent Lodge – Cape Pillar Lodge

Wake to the silence of Crescent Lodge and wander down to the stunning dining room for a hearty breakfast to start the day. From here, head due south with views across Safety Cove and Maingon Bay to Bruny Island. Climbing Arthurs Peak, 300 metres above sea level, is worth the oceanic vista. In these parts, White Bellied Sea Eagles soar in the thermal currents, so be sure to look skyward. Lunch isn’t far away, an easy downhill descent to south-facing cliffs where pelagic seabirds are plenty – albatross, petrels and gannets. Here, there’s nothing between you and Antarctica.

Following lunch, skirt the edge of Tornado Ridge before heading south toward Cape Pillar Lodge, your base for the next two nights. Your pace might quicken in the knowledge there is a massage, facial or relaxation bath on offer at Cape Pillar Lodge.

Approx 5 hours walking

Day 3: Cape Pillar Lodge return

This is the most adventurous day of your journey. Today you’ll walk through silver gum forest to the highest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere. A side trip to The Blade is a must, with staggering views across to Tasman Island. Lunch is served at Chasm Lookout.  It’s then a direct return journey home to the lodge where the relaxation pavilion, three-course goodness and ocean views await.  Unlace the boots, read a book with the sea breeze in your toes.

You could also forego today’s walk and spend the day at the lodge. Enjoy a treatment orimmerse yourself in the enchanting surrounds.

Approximately 6 hours walking (optional)

Day 4: Cape Pillar Lodge – Fortescue Bay

Walk through a patch of rainforest and breathe in the lush mosses and ferns, as you walk toward the peninsula’s highest peak, Mount Fortescue. Enjoy lunch with leafy-framed ocean views and contemplate a side trip to the majesty of Cape Hauy. Descend to the cool white sands of Fortescue Bay and sink your toes in pristine sands or perhaps take a celebratory dive into the crystal clear waves. We will then travel back to Hobart and celebrate our journey with a glass of bubbles.

Approx 6 hours walking (Cape Hauy side trip optional)
