Beyond Doo Town, Fossil Bay Lookout stands beside some of the Tasman Peninsula’s most visited geological formations.
The lookout is renowned for its sweeping ocean views and impressive dolerite cliffs.
When the seas are rough, huge swells pound the coastline and create impressive displays of white spray.
Nearby Fossil Island is covered in well-worn tracks and provides uniquely beautiful views of Fossil Bay. The island and its rugged, wild terrain can be reached by scrambling across a rocky outcrop at low tide..
Local wildlife is plentiful here and dolphins are drawn to the nutrient-rich waters to the delight of onlookers. A nearby reef stretches far into the bay and ensures local boats are kept well clear of this quiet place.
An afternoon spent exploring Devil’s Kitchen, Tasman Arch and the salty geyser of the neighbouring Tasman Blowhole makes for one the best Tasmania has to offer.
