Cape Raoul

On the southern end of the Tasman Peninsula is a promontory called Cape Raoul. Indeed you can technically say it is the “journey to the ends of the world”.

On the southern end of the Tasman Peninsula is a promontory called Cape Raoul. Indeed you can technically say it is the “journey to the ends of the world”. It was in May when we decided to go Cape Raoul. Reviews on the net seems a difficult task to do. I am not an experienced hiker and so with my lovely wife and three beautiful daughters, but since looking at the internet and Instagram photos, the hesitation becomes a motivation.

After worrisome weather (it was windy and foggy), the fantastic view took it away. Hiking was about 1.5hrs, and after 30 minutes, you’ll arrive on the first lookout. The entire track is 15.4k and takes about 2:15 each way. I heard about Shipstern Bluff but didn’t pursue it due to weather restrictions.

A 116km away from Sandy Bay, Hobart approximately 1hr and 45 minutes drive via Arthur Highway/A9. A simple navigator would lead you right to the foot of the trail.

Cape Raoul is one of the walks you shouldn’t miss while both feets are strong and steady.
