The magnificent plateau of Table Cape is by far Wynyard’s most remarkable natural wonder. Sitting at 180 metres high, ‘The Cape’ – as locals refer to it – dominates the Wynyard coastline and offers spectacular views of Tasmania’s coast and agricultural farmlands. As you drive to the top of the remains of a 12 million year-old volcano you’ll reach a viewing platform where, on a clear day, you can see George Town’s Low Head and mountain ranges over 175 kilometres away. Take a short stroll along the cliff-top walking track to the Table Cape Lighthouse, the only operating lighthouse open for tours in mainland Tasmania. Climb the beautiful spiral staircase up four levels while your guide describes the amazing history of the lighthouse and end with an exhilarating balcony experience and magnificent views.
Table Cape is also home to the Table Cape Tulip Farm where acres of patchwork fields explode with colour each spring. This is a sight that will leave you breathless, so be sure to add a trip to Wynyard and Table Cape to your itinerary this spring.
