Rocky Cape National Park is situated on the North-West Coast of Tasmania, a two-hour drive west of Launceston. It is mainly a day use park and is best discovered on foot. Choose from short easy strolls or longer day walks into the less-travelled parts of this park, taking in scenic hills, tranquil bays and rocky headlands. The geographical feature; Rocky Cape is dual named pinmatik/Rocky Cape.

The Park has two approaches. The main entrance is off the Bass Highway (A2) between the Rocky Cape township and Hellyer. Turn on to Rocky Cape Rd (C227) to access Burgess Cove, picnic facilities, the boat ramp and the lighthouse.

The eastern end of the park is accessed from Sisters Beach. Take the Bass Highway (A2) 12km west of Wynyard to the Boat Harbour turn off and travel 1.5km on the C232. Turn on to and Irbys Rd (C233) and travel 8km to Sisters Beach.
