Crescent Beach - 3 hours Welcome to sand dune paradise on this walk to the aptly named Crescent Beach on Tasmania's Tasman Peninsula, where it's almost compulsory to slide down the dunes on your bum or board. The walk begins at the car park beside Remarkable Cave (it's worth the few minutes to walk down to the cave entrance to watch the Southern Ocean surge through the hole in the cliffs). You then head off in the opposite direction, walking through coastal scrub and sandy ground to a fissure in the cliffs known as Maingon Blowhole. It's worth peeping over the edge to get a sense of the depth of the blowhole. But don't get too close. As you near Crescent Beach, around four kilometres from the car park, look for the turning to the right to take a short detour onto low Mt Brown, with its open summit providing an aerial perspective on the beach ahead. Back at the junction, descend to the long beach, from where there are gorgeous views across to Tasman Island and Cape Pillar, the star feature of one of Tasmania's other great bushwalks - the multi-day Three Capes Track. Head to the far end of the beach to find the highest of the dunes, and don't be surprised if you find kids and other hikers sliding down them on boogie boards or toboggans. It's a Tasmanian ritual. Return to the car park along the same route.
