Parks for all People - Access for the mobility impaired in Tasmania's national parks and reserves

Take the Tasman Hwy (A3) to Sorell, then the Arthur Hwy (A9). Turn off onto Blowhole Road (C338) just after Eaglehawk Neck, and follow the signposts to the lookouts.

The Tasman National Park protects spectacular coastal areas on the eastern and southern coastlines on the Tasman and Forestier peninsulas. Lookouts to four of the major attractions – Tasman Arch/Devils Kitchen, and Tasman Blowhole/Fossil Bay – are all within a 1 km drive of each other. The walking tracks which lead to the attractions and lookouts are relatively wide and fl at, although in some areas the gradient increases, and the surface is a little uneven. Wheelchair users may require assistance. There are accessible toilets at the Blowhole, although assistance may be required with the path leading from the carpark to the toilet block.
