Skirting the cliff line from the Tasman Arch car park, the trail to Waterfall Bay is a brilliant 1 hour return walk to via a hardened walking track. The trail follows the heathland for 300m before ducking on and off the cliff’s edge. Multiple viewing platforms along the trail provide fantastic views of the tremendous coastline the peninsula is renowned for. Once at Waterfall Bay you are met with towering cliff dropping down into the ocean. Best viewed after heavy rain, the waterfalls at Waterfall Bay fall spectacularly from over 200m up.
Combined with a visit to the Tasman Arch, Devils Kitchen or the Tessellated Pavements at Eaglehawk Neck this walk provides a great opportunity to stretch your legs and get a feel for the magnitude of this area.
