Three Capes Track

Bookings for the multi-day Three Capes Track experience in Tasmania’s far south-east can be made on the Three Capes Track website, www.threecapestrack.com.au


The 48-kilometre track has been designed as an achievable experience for a wide range of ages and abilities. It’s been built to a dry-boot standard from a range of materials, including timbers, stone and gravel and is about one-metre wide, wide enough for two people to walk side-by-side.


The journey begins with walkers checking in at the Port Arthur Historic Site. A Pennicott Wilderness Journeys cruise then delivers walkers to the start of the track at Denmans Cove. Over four days and three nights, walkers will cover the 48 kilometres, taking in tall eucalypt forests, coastal heath and Australia’s highest sea cliffs.


Evenings are spent in warm and comfortable environmentally-sensitive cabins at Surveyors, Munro and Retakunna.
