Created by the movement of the earth and the effects of natural erosion on flat sedimentary rock, Tessellated Pavement is a rare geological phenomenon found only in a few places in the world. This particular one sits at the northern end of Pirates Bay beach. Photographers have spent endless hours trying to capture the mystery of this geological oddity, but to experience its full effect you'll need to negotiate several sets of stable steps and clamber over few rocks. Nearby attractions include a natural arch and blowhole, as well as a monument to the watch dogs of Port Arthur penal colony. Take the guesswork out of planning a Eaglehawk Neck vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
Tessellated Pavement Reviews
📷 Don't miss this interesting and photogenic spot. A short walk takes you down to sheets of rock splintered over geological time to look like city streets and rice paddies. Lots of easy access to tide pools when the tide is low. Kids can play here safely for quite a while.
Love coming here - made it just as the tide was coming in at sunset. Always a beautiful place and well worth a visit. Parking and stairs to the pavement
