Petal Point is a primitive camp situated high on an escarpment looking north across Bass Strait.
Situated in the less travelled north east corner of Tasmania, we loved it because of its remoteness and panoramic views. At Petal Point, you need to be fully self-contained, take all your supplies in and take any evidence of your stay out.
We settled in to the silence easily – only interruption was the ocean waves, sea breezes and the Mozart we belted out around the campfire at sunset – a luxury afforded because we were the only camping residents at the time.
For boaties, there is a ramp – we settled for some rock fishing and long walks along the isolated beach, and drives to nearby Musselroe Bay, Mt William National Park and Tassie’s eastern most point at Eddystone Lighthouse.
