Tasman Peninsula, Tasmania
The Tasman Peninsula, home to the Tasman National Park in south east Tasmania is extremely beautiful and rugged, where rainforest meets the ocean a top of cliff edges. The peninsula is surrounded seas and oceans, the eastern side being moulded and transformed for thousands of years, resulting in amazing natural wonders and stunning rock formations that seemingly rise from the ocean. Evidence of the harshness of the ocean and the environment this region has seen over such a long period of time can be easily recognised. Yet, this harshness is similarly reflected in Tasmania's history when Europeans settled in Tasmania, and opted for Port Arthur a penal colony.
A few kilometres south of Eaglehawk Neck is Doo Town. Some of Tasmania's natural landmarks such as the Tasman's Arch, and Devil's Kitchen are found in Doo Town, and hiking tracks that take you along the Tasman Coastal Trail commence from here. The hikes take you to these landmarks and along the coast, hugging the edge of Waterfall Bay. It's on this hike you can see where a creek drops into the ocean. It is also on this hike where you walk past Camp Falls.
Camp Falls is small waterfall that is easiliy accessible from the trail. The official track guides you over a bridge that crosses the creek, with the waterfall dropping directly to the east of it.
