Eaglehawk Neck

The historic Eaglehawk Neck is the narrow and beautiful isthmus that joins the Tasman Peninsula to the rest of Tasmania. In the penal days, a line of vicious dogs would keep convicts from escaping. A bronze statue of a rottweiler still stands watch and is just a short walk from the Officer’s Quarters, which is now a museum. Aside from the history, Eaglehawk Neck is home to amazing natural experiences, including the Tessellated Pavement and one of the best beaches for both surfing, long walks and sea-life.
