White Beach Tourist Park, White Beach, TAS


Day 325 – 7th January 2012
White Beach Tourist Park, White Beach, TAS

Another early start to walk to Cape Pillar before the wind quicks in as this walk is not advised in strong winds. We walked past Lunchtime Creek to Perdition Ponds and finally reached the Blade and Chasm Lookout where we had great views over Tasman Island and the coastline. After a rest we walked back to the campsite and packed up (?km return - ?h). Next we had lunch and walked back to Fortescue Bay (8km – 2h). We moved on to White Beach where we booked into the caravan park and enjoyed a relaxing evening.

  1. I just discovered your blog and read almost the whole thing today - great inspiration for camping! It seems to end very suddenly and I'd love to know whether the rest of your trip was okay. Cheers, Kerryn.
