Reposted from @tasmaniagram - WOW... sunset from inside Remarkable Cave thanks to @adventurersanddreamers 🌅🌊 Remarkable Cave is a truly unforgettable experience. The cave is a tunnel carved through the sheer rock face by the erosion of the Southern Ocean. Just 500 metres past the entrance to the Port Arthur Historic Sites, Tasmania along Nubeena Road there is a left turn that reads 'Remarkable Cave'. A pathway which includes 130-odd stairs takes you down to the viewing platform which provides a stunning sight looking through the cave out to sea. It is remarkable not only for its unique form, but also because when viewed from the observation platform, the opening on the ocean-side is the shape of Tasmania.
The cave is now a rock bridge carved out of the sandstone cliff face, but it was once a deep cave. The viewing platform at the bottom of steep stairs is where the back of the cave collapsed. The debris has long since been washed out to sea except for the large sea-smoothed boulders that remain in the hollow. Unlike most sea caves, Remarkable Cave has two entrances on the ocean-side, which were created by erosion along fractures created by ancient earthquakes.
