Bivouac Bay camping area (walk-in camping)
This beautiful bay is a 2 hr hike north from Fortescue Bay on the Tasman Coastal Trail, following the coastline along beaches and over steep-sided headlands. The views are worth the effort and the campsite is in a very scenic spot with a freshwater creek and toilets. From here you can continue on the Tasman Coastal Trail to Waterfall Bay (6 hr) or head back to Fortescue. To access the Tasman Trail, drive 12 km along the unsealed Fortescue Bay Rd from the Arthur Hwy and walk to the northern end of the beach, where the track is signposted.

This campsite is located in Tasman National Park
Needle-like rock spires, towering sea cliffs, blowhole caves and pounding surf make up the awe-inspiring gothic landscape of this coastal park, which spans the remote southern regions of the Tasman and Forestier peninsulas. It offers some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Australia, and sits alongside some of the country’s most brutal history in the slowly crumbling remains of Port Arthur’s convict heritage. To reach the park, take the Arthur Hwy (A9), turning left along Blowhole Rd just past Eaglehawk Neck, to the park’s thumping blowholes in its eastern section; or continue towards Port Arthur, turning left along the 12 km unsealed Fortescue Bay Rd to a lovely white-sand beach and camping area. Further west, access tracks to Cape Raoul and the world-renowned big-wave surfing site at Shipstern Bluff are reached from Stormlea Rd.
