Create an itinerary including Remarkable Cave
Carved out of the sandstone cliff face forming a rock bridge, Remarkable Cave is truly remarkable for its opening that takes roughly the shape of the map of Tasmania. A short drive from Port Arthur Historic Site, this intriguing geographical feature is best seen from the viewing platform that lies at the bottom of a steep slippery stairway. Notice the huge boulders near the mouth of the cave that were left when the back of the cave collapsed. The top of the cave serves as a good lookout point. At low tide, you can climb down off the platform and experience the cave from within. Add Remarkable Cave and other attractions to your Port Arthur trip itinerary using our Port Arthur day trip site.

  • The walk to the viewing platform takes about 15 min and down about 150 steps . Views are amazing but the climb up and down maybe a big challenging .

  • If you have time pop in!! You can walk down to the cave about 15 minutes or just go to the viewing platform. Beautiful little spot. We popped in after visiting port Arthur.

  • Remarkable! Hidden at the bay of Hobart, remarkable cave offers a unique formation. It is very easy to get there by a vehicle. I have no idea if bus service is available, but there is a lot of car parking spot. You first can witness the bay and her beauty and turn towards your right, towards remarkable cave. You will slightly descend down on well man-made tracks. You can view the cave from the enclosure but I discovered that you can actually climb down since there is a ladder behind the enclosure. Be careful when waves is rushing through the caves. It is strong waves that can drag people with it. There are lots of stones available to build Japanese prayer shine (If you have time). There are lots of spots around this bay to see, so do not spend too much time here. You do not have to pay to view this.
  • What a Remarkable cave indeed! it was such a windy day, thankfully, to the iron staircase we were able to walk down to explore the entrance to the cave. It's a beautiful scenic location with a short walk (15-20mnts) unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
