Wet Cave

Point of Interest


Banksia Grove/Caves Circuit Up to 1 hour return, approximately 1.6km: A clearly defined track near the Sisters Beach boat ramp climbs into the heath-covered hills. You soon reach Banksia Grove, an extensive stand of saw banksias with spectacularly large cylindrical flowers. When these ripen they develop seed capsules along the drying flowers. These capsules give mature flowers the face-like features which author May Gibbs fictionalised as her 'bad banksia men'. From Banksia Grove take the link track towards the coast. Here you'll find an Aboriginal shelter, Lee Archer Cave, set dramatically above the rocky shore. A platform allows viewing of the cave while protecting midden material. Please keep to this platform. After returning to the junction, climb steeply down to Wet Cave. Towards the rear of this aptly named cave you will often find a pool of water. From the cave the track drops down to the coast. A rock-hop of 100m or so leads back to the Sisters Beach boat ramp. A valid parks pass is required for entry to Tasmania's national parks. Pets are not permitted. No camping or overnight parking.
