Cape Pillar is the crowning beauty of Tasmania’s popular “Three Capes Track”, which is located in Tasman National Park in Tasmania’s southeast. The Three Capes Track takes visitors out to Cape Pillar and Cape Hauy, while the third cape, Cape Raoul, can be seen at a distance (and visited on a separate day walk). These stunning dolerite sea cliffs rise out of the Southern Ocean to an astounding height of 300m (984’) and are among the tallest sea cliffs in the world.
Cape Hauy can be done as a day walk separate from the official Three Capes Track. The 8 km (5 mi) walk begins at Fortescue Bay and takes about 4-5 hours to complete. From Cape Hauy, bushwalkers also get a fantastic view of the Candlestick and Totem Pole, two free standing rock columns. Excellent views of the Hippolytes, a couple of picturesque islands also known for their Australian Fur Seal colonies, can also be obtained from Cape Hauy.
