Devil’s Kitchen & Tasman Arch

Devil’s Kitchen

This very aptly named feature gets its name from the cauldron of foaming fury, normally seen at water level from the viewing platform several hundred feet above, where the swells of the Great Southern Ocean crash into the base of the tall cliffs. Even on relatively calm days it’s still an awesome sight.

Tasman Arch

Tasman's Arch from the water.

Tasman Arch from the water.

Just 100 metres from the lookout to the Devil’s Kitchen is the massive Tasman Arch which would resemble the Devil’s Kitchen were it not for the huge bridge of solid rock that spans the gap across the chasm created by the wind and waves over millions of years. It would be another Blowhole if the water was not so far below the viewing platform.

Safe walking tracks enable you to circumnavigate the hole’s dizzying depths and walk across the ‘bridge’. You can also venture out to the edge of the sea cliffs beyond.
