Walk the The Three Capes Track on the Tasman Peninsula

The newest mulit day walk opened in Tasmnaia earlier this year on the Tasman Peninsula - better known for the Port Arthur Historic Site but in fact a place of drop-dead stunning coastal scenery.  You can walk from Cape to Cape on a new self-guided track, starting with a memorable boat ride from Port Arthur, and staying in beautifully designed huts. For a bit of luxury at the end of the walk, why not spend a few nights on a gorgelus beach B&B right on White Beach. Tasmanian Odyssey can book it all for you - and in fact we recently arranged for a writer from the UK's Telegraph newspaper to expereince it.
