The Tessellated Pavement is a state reserve at Eaglehawk Neck on the Tasman Peninsula in Tasmania.  It is about 25 minutes from this historic Port Arthur.

We stayed at Eaglehawk Neck overnight which allowed us to take the short drive to Port Arthur to be there when it opened.  It also allowed us to see this amazing formation both at dusk and the following morning.

From the Tessellated Pavement State Reserve car park it takes a couple of minutes to walk along a bush track and down a few flights of stairs to this amazing rock formation.

The formation began around 60 million to 160 million years ago when pressure caused cracks in the rock.  Since then the ocean has eroded the areas between the cracks giving the tiled appearance we see today.

If you are in Tasmania, the Tessellated Pavement is a must see. But a tip, it can get slippery so be careful when walking on the rocks.
