Eagle Hawk Neck

Eagle Hawk Neck

In colonial times, fierce guard dogs were tethered in a line across the width of Eaglehawk Neck and soldiers patrolled the line to ensure no prisoners escaped from the notorious Port Arthur penal settlement.

Today Eaglehawk Neck is a quiet fishing village on the narrow isthmus between the Tasman Peninsula and the Forestier Peninsula.
