Port Arthur is a bit over an hours drive from Hobart. The Candle Stick and the Totem Pole can be reached by an hour and a bit's walk to Cape Hauy from Fortescue Bay, which you turn off to a couple of kms before Port Arthur.

Mt Brown and Dauntless Point are half an hours walk south on a new track (2019) from the Remarkable Cave car park, just south of Port Arthur. After walking along the track for about 25 minutes you come to a sandy leave the track at the far end (east) of a longer section of duckboard, just past a  sandy creek. From here follow the coast aroundon round, first passing above Parrot Shelf Cliffs, and then coming to an amazingly steep and juggy (for dolerite) cliff covered with eye bolts - this is the Paradiso.


For Mt Brown, stay on the path for another few minutes and then follow the signposted track up right to the summit.

Long and short dolerite sea cliffs. The rock is quite different from alpine dolerite because it has been weathered by the waves, not snow and ice.
