A new private hiking trip through the Tasman national park, starting at Denmans Cove and finishing at Fortescue Bay, is worth every effort

Standing on the top of the Blade, looking out over Tasman Island as the waves crash against the rocky cliffs below, the realisation that I’m close to the very edge of the world rushes over me. In that moment, I feel small and very isolated. With that vast view ahead and only the trees behind me, I take a few deep breaths and try to steady my racing heart. I’m on the third day of the four-day Three Capes Lodge bushwalk through the Tasman national park. The Blade is a dolerite column on the edge of Cape Pillar along the remote southern coast of Tasmania. And getting to that point has taken some doing, yet in that breathtaking moment, it’s all worth it.
