South East Cape

South East Cape from South Cape Bay cliffs - 6 October 2007I realised that I don't have a very clear picture of South East Cape up here, despite having eleventy-seven instances of walks to South Cape Bay. Here's a clear view on a sunny day of South East Cape from the cliffs at the eastern end of South Cape Bay. South East Cape is the southernmost point of mainland Tasmania. It is apparently accessible via an illegally-cut track which requires some tide-dependent sea-level traversing to the east. I might go and try to find it one day.

Out of random surfing (haha, surfing!) I found your blog, and are you familiar with Steve Lowes? He is a guy who raises coral in his basement for both home enjoyment and scientific preservation. You should check him out!

No I'm not, but he sounds suitably crazy. Where does he live?

I was given a map of the route, but no mention was made of having worry about the tide. I will check this out from the source though.

Hi Peter, I was pointed along the coast from where the track arrives at the cliffs. I would be interested in finding out if there's either an easier way, OR if maybe it isn't dependent on the tide. If it traverses the beach and rocks below the cliffs/dunes to the east, I think it must get wet at times, but I could be wrong. Cheers.
