Tassie Trip Day 2: Exploring

Located within the Tasman National Park you’ll find Tasman Arch, Devils Kitchen and The Blow Hole.  The coastal scenery found here is beautiful and reminded us of the coastline around Kalbarri in WA.   It’s the rugged beauty of these sea cliffs and the sheer drops that make this place so popular.

Tasman Arch

You can’t have a visit to the blowhole without trying out the seafood from the “Doo-lishus” foodtruck which is conveniently located in the car park for the blowhole.  We enjoyed our scallops and chips, not cheap, but it was a pleasant surprise to find this in the middle of nowhere!


Just past Eaglehawk Neck we came across this quirky little village called “Doo Town”.

Apparently in 1935 an architect by the name of Eric Round started a tradition when he named his shack “Doo I”.  This apparently caught on and now nearly every shack in this seaside village has it’s own Doo name … Doodle Doo, Love Me Doo, Doo U, Xanadu, Dr Doolittle, Rum Doo.


Attraction Information:  Doo Town, Tasman Arch, Devils Kitchen and The Blowhole are about 1 hour or so drive south of Hobart.


We arrived back in Hobart after a long day, but it wasn’t over yet!  We had read about Street Eats which are held in the city every Friday night during summer.  Food trucks are spread around the park offering various types of food ….. tip, get there early as they do sell out as we found out!  It’s a great atmosphere though as people are everywhere sitting around on picnic blankets munching away on food and listening to the live band.

We then took a walk along the waterside of Sullivan’s Cove/Constitution Dock where the famous Sydney to Hobart yacht race ends.



There was a lot of activity around this area as it’s full of restaurants and bars that are now occupying the old historic buildings.
