Information

This unique geological formation is located at the tide line below the Lufra Hotel on the eastern shore of Pirates Bay, just before crossing Eaglehawk Neck, between the Forester and Tasman Peninsulas on the road to Port Arthur, Tasmania.

This rare feature is worth the effort to view. It only requires a short walk from the car park. It is formed by cracking of the rock caused by movements in the Earth’s crust. Then salt and water erosion do the rest. It's name is derived from its similarity in appearance to a cobble stone pavement.

Turn into Pirates Bay Drive that turns to the left a short distance before reaching Eaglehawk Neck.
