south of Port Arthur is a truly "Remarkable" cave. A pathway which
includes 130 odd stairs takes visitors down to the viewing platform which
provides a view looking through the cave out to sea.
to the cave is from the beach below the viewing platform.
From the viewing platform the entrance to the cave
from the sea is shaped a little like a map of Tasmania.
About 20 metres into the cave it
branches in two heading out to sea.

Usually only accessible is summer - but not always.
During rough weather the sand in the cave is
washed out to sea making the cave inaccessible without getting wet.
We visited the cave on the 29th of April 2012 to
find the cave putting on a 'remarkable' show.
Very rough seas churned up foam turning the sea into what looked like whipped cream.
