Ship Stern Bluff (aka as Devil’s Point or simply ‘Shippies’ – globally-renowned big wave surfing location on the south eastern coast of Tasmania, Australia.
How to get there:
Surfers/videographers often take a 30km boat/jetski ride from Hobart. You can also walk – here’s some instructions courtesy of Tastrails
The start of the Shipstern Bluff walk is just under 2 hours, 115km, away from Hobart on the southern part of the Tasmanian Peninsula. From Hobart head over the Tasman Bridge and continue on the Arthurs Highway, turning right at the main intersection in Sorell (sign for Tasmanian Peninsula). Continue past Port Arthur until you reach a turn off to your left to Stormlea Road marked Highcroft 3 Stormlea 9 (if you reach Nubeena you have gone too far). Head along Stormlea Road for 10km until the road stops, the start of the walk is sign posted here.
