Sisters Beach - North West Coast - Tasmania

Sisters Beach

Sisters Beach is a small beachside village on the North West Coast of Tasmania which is known for its beautiful beach and the fact that it is surrounded by the magnificent Rocky Cape National Park. The Park is recognised for its significant native flora and fauna and its significant Aboriginal heritage. Also known as Tangdimmaa, Rocky Cape was home to the Raverloihenna people. There is evidence of the 8,000 years of Aboriginal occupation. and middens and caves are plentiful. This is also home to breath-taking native plants including the Paterson‘s spider orchid which is listed as a threatened species and the saw-toothed banksia (Banksia serrata) which is only known to occur naturally here. Rocky Cape National Park is heavily populated with native wildlife - pademelons (wallabies), Bennetts wallabies, Eastern grey kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, Eastern barred bandicoots, echidnas, spotted quolls, ringtail possums and brushtail possums all live here and it is not uncommon to have some come to visit!

There are many fabulous walks that start at Sisters Beach Retreat that will take you to caves, beaches, waterfalls and past some stunning coastal and inland scenery. There are walks from twenty minutes to 8 hours in duration for beginner and experienced bush walkers.

The main beach of white sand is approximately three kilometres in length and is home to plenty of marine life so boating, fishing, swimming, diving and snorkeling are very popular with dolphins being quite common, and seals and whales being seen occasionally.
