Description

A beautiful coastal walk offering sweeping views of the Derwent estuary which finishes at Pot Beach and provides excellent views of the Iron Pot Lighthouse. The Blessington Track is narrow and undulating as it follows the coast reserve to Fort Beach 1.7km away so not suited to unsteady walkers. Continue to walk along Fort Beach to the track at the end that goes onto Cape Deliverance and the Lone Pine Memorial. Pot Beach is on the other side of the cape where there are views to Iron Pot and Bruny Island North.
