WOW... the first time we have shared a sunset from inside Remarkable Cave on the Tasman Peninsula and it's pretty special Thanks to @adventurersanddreamers for capturing this magic moment.
Most people who visit Port Arthur don't realise that there are plenty more breathtaking spots to see in and around the Tasman Peninsula. Turning left upon leaving Port Arthur onto Safety Cove Road, rather than right, leads you to some amazing rock formations, the most remarkable of them all being the appropriately named Remarkable Cave. It is remarkable not only for its unique form, but also because its opening, when viewed from the observation platform, is the shape of Tasmania.
The cave is today a deep rock bridge carved out of the sandstone cliff face, but it was once a deep cave. The viewing platform at the bottom of steep stairs is where the back of the cave collapsed. The debris has long since been washed out to sea except for the large sea-smoothed boulders that remain in the hollow. Unlike most sea caves, Remarkable Cave has two entrances on the ocean-side, which were created by erosion along fractures created by ancient earthquakes.
