Things to do


Shipsterns bluff

The home of Australian big wave surfing lies at the bottom of the Tasman Peninsula, just a 30min drive south from The Tin Lantern.

Wake up early and treat yourself to the raw immensity of one of the worlds largest waves, by walking to the Shipsterns Bluff lookout, or down to the waters edge if you're feeling fit.

Finish your walk off and enjoy a wood fired sauna & dip in the pond, at the Shipsterns trail head for a $5 donation. Click for more info.
