Tasman Island - Tasmania


Atop 220 mtr high vertical sea-cliffs and surrounded by Cathedrall Rock, Cape Pillar, The Blade and The Chasm, Tasman Island would have to be considered the center piece of the Tasman National Park.

Carved out of Jurasic Dolerite by the great Southern Ocean and seperated from the Tasman Peninsula by a 1200 mtr wide chasm the island's lighthouse adds the finishing touch to a stunning feature of the Tasmanian coastline.
