The Tasman Peninsula

posted in: Tasmania

A few minutes south of the Tessellated Pavement is a blowhole which I believe is part of the Tasman National Park.  It turned out to be a popular spot, so popular that there’s even a fish and chips spot there.  This is actually away from the beach, the water has tunnelled through and apparently you can see the water reach up to eight metres.   Not so much on the day we went.
