This campsite is located in Lime Bay State Reserve
Lime Bay State Reserve is a beautiful 1300 ha secluded reserve of sheltered beaches and pretty eucalypt woodlands at the end of Coal Mines Rd, on the north-west tip of the Tasman Peninsula. There are 2 tranquil beaches: Lime Bay is next to the camping area, while the gorgeous Lagoon Beach lies in the lee of Sloping Island, an easy 40 min walk. Nearby are remnants of the 1833 coal mines where Port Arthur’s most hardened convicts were sent for punishment. Underground cells and mine entrances are still visible.
